Fort Lee BAHSoldiers and their families who choose to live off post should apply for Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH). This is a monthly stipend meant to help with housing costs. It’s based on the current rank of the soldier applying and the zip code where they choose to live. With BAH, families get the support of the military while still living off post in a community of their choosing. Taking advantage of BAH is a great way to help cover recurring costs and make room for more important things in your budget, like planning for a stable future. You can follow this link to look up your Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) for your rank and zip code. This will help you create your budget and guide your home search.
