About half the U.S. Counties (about 1,500) have little to no military population. While half the zip codes is significant, less than two percent of service members that are eligible for Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) are within these counties. In order to account for these service members there are approximately 30 separate County Cost Groups (CCGs) assigned, each with similar housing costs. Use the BAH Calculator to enter your zip code to determine your Military Housing Area (MHA) aka County Cost Group. They range from ZZ510 to ZZ890 in increments of 10.

Military bases in New York (not a complete list):

  • Fort Drum, Jefferson, New York
  • Fort Hamilton, Brooklyn, New York
  • Saratoga Springs NSU, Saratoga Springs, New York
  • US Military Academy, West Point, New York
  • Watervliet Arsenal, Watervliet, New York
