Developing a sense of community here starts before you arrive at Offutt AFB. We recognize the efforts behind this transition and want to make sure you are satisfied with the details of your move.

Our hours are Monday through Thursday 0700-1630 and Friday 0730-1615. Our phone number is (402) 294-6242 (DSN 271-6242).

Military members assigned to Offutt AFB 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.

For more information about your BAH, visit the Defense Travel Management Office website.
