In May 2019, to honor Military Appreciation Month the Homes for Heroes Foundation presented five grants totaling $50,000 to five non-profit organizations who support homeless Veterans. The five organizations are all members of the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans (NCHV) and will use the grant to directly help Veterans by finding them emergency, temporary and permanent affordable housing. Each $10,000 donation will help serve those who have bravely served our country.
The United States gives its military members a Basic Allowance for Housing, or BAH. If governmental quarters are not available, the BAH provides military members with equitable housing compensation. The BAH you receive depends on the housing rates near your base, your dependency status, utilities, renters’ insurance and your pay grade. If those variables change at all in your area, there will likely be a corresponding change in your BAH rate. Here’s everything you need to know about BAH, a BAH calculator and significant savings on a home to help you.
