    About half the U.S. counties (about 1,500) have little to no military population. While half the ZIP codes is significant, less than 2% of service members who are eligible for Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) reside in these counties. To account for these service members, approximately 30 separate county cost groups (CCGs) are assigned, each with similar housing costs.

    Use this BAH Calculator and enter your zip code to determine your Military Housing Area (MHA) aka county cost group. They range from ZZ510 to ZZ890 in increments of 10.

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.
