    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 the BAH calculator to 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.

    Military Bases in Washington:

    The BAH rates listed are for all U.S. Armed Forces service branches: Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines, Navy, Space Force and Reserves, where applicable. BAH rates in high-cost areas are greater than those in low-cost areas.

    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 their estimated payments. Both BAH and MHA benefits are based on the same payment tables, but benefit amounts vary.
