BAH rates rise in 2015
Basic allowance for housing rates for Airmen in 2015 will increase around $17 per month, or 0.5 percent.
Individual rate protection for Airmen still applies; this means even if the BAH rates decline, an Airman who maintains uninterrupted eligibility in a given location will not see a rate decrease.
This ensures Airmen who have made long-term commitments in the form of a lease or contract are not penalized if local housing costs decrease.
The new rates take effect on 1 Jan 15.  Link to the DoD release is:
