Developing a sense of community here starts before you arrive at DAFB. We recognize the efforts behind this transition and want to make sure you are satisfied with the details of your move. To obtain referral and relocation assistance, we encourage you to reach out for personalized services provided by the Military Housing Office (MHO) staff.
The MHO maintains information on available housing in the area to rent or purchase. They offer individual counseling and personal attention to your specific needs. In addition they can provide maps, review leases, help with mediation and compliant resolution, mortgage and realtor data, installation information, furniture rental/purchase information, and recreational brochures are just a few of the services offered by the MHO at DAFB.
Military members are entitled to various allowances to ensure the transition to a new location is as smooth and stress free as possible. If you have any questions about the allowance listed, please contact the MHO.
Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH)
Military members assigned to DAFB receive Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH). The purpose of the BAH program is to provide housing allowances to service members based on median housing costs in local civilian markets. The DoD determines the correct housing allowance to enable members to afford suitable housing within a reasonable distance of their duty location. The allowance is set based on geographic duty location, pay grade, and dependent status and is adjusted each year.
