    About half of U.S. counties (about 1,500) have little to no military population. Fewer than 2% of service members eligible for BAH reside in these counties. To account for these service members, there are about 30 county cost groups (CCGs) assigned, each with similar housing costs. Use the BAH calculator to enter your ZIP code and determine your MHA, also known as CCG. The MHAs range from ZZ510 to ZZ890 in increments of 10.

    Military Bases in Minnesota:

    • Minneapolis Military Entrance Processing Center (MEPS), Minneapolis
    • Minneapolis-St. Paul Air Reserve Station, Minneapolis
    • U.S. Army Recruiting Command (USAREC) Minneapolis Recruiting Battalion, Minneapolis

    Veterans, dependents, National Guard and Reserves can use the MHA Calculator to see estimated monthly payments. Active duty service members should use the BAH calculator or tables to see estimated payments. Both BAH and MHA benefits are based on the same payment tables, but benefit amounts vary.
