Basic Housing Allowance-2011 Rates Published By the Pentagon

The Pentagon in Arlington VA

The 2011 Basic Housing Allowance (BAH) rates have been published by the Pentagon.  Knowing the BAH for the Pentagon, Fort Belvoir, Quantico and the local military installations is important for families moving to the Northern Virginia area.  One of the misconceptions about BAH among the general public is that the BAH rate covers all of housing expenses.  In an area such as Northern Virginia the BAH rate may not cover even monthly rent depending on the service members rank.

The BAH calculator will help you understand the BAH rate for your rank and assigned installation.  It is based on the duty station and not the actual address of the property being rented.  So a family assigned to Fort Belvoir will receive the same amount of BAH whether they choose to live just a few miles from the installation or 25 miles away in an area that may have "cheaper" rent.


The 2011 Basic Housing Allowance Calculator will provide you a chance to look at the rates for Northern Virginia area before your orders arrive.

To calculate your BAH rate the following zip codes are for the local military installations:

Andrews AFB      Zip Code:   20762

Anacostia-Bolling    Zip Code:  20032

Fort Belvoir         Zip Code:  22060

Pentagon            Zip Code:  22202

Quantico            Zip Code:   22134

 

If you have PCS orders to Fort Belvoir, the Pentagon, Quantico or any of the Northern Virgina and DC military installations give Cindy Jones and CJ Realty group a call at 703-346-2213.  Whether you are buying or renting we can help you find a place to call home while you are stationed in the Northern Virginia area.  No hassle, no pressure, just straight talk about the Northern Virginia real estate market and whether buying or renting is the best option for you.
