JTR Update: Revised Chapter 10 to Publish 8/1

The August 2018 version of the Joint Travel Regulations (JTR) will include a revised Chapter 10 - Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) and Overseas Housing Allowance (OHA).This chapter has been rewritten to use plain language, standardized terminology, and include extensive use of if/then tables in place of long paragraphs. 

It is important to note that the policies contained in the August 2017 version of this chapter will cover all of the same travel authorities as the July 2018 version.  No policies will change but may be rewritten to ease understanding. 

A preview of the rewritten chpater is available through the approved Uniformed Travel Determination (UTD), UTD 007-18(E) — Revised JTR, Chapter 10 – Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) and Overseas Housing Allowance (OHA)This version should be used to update any JTR paragraph references in publications and training materials.

This change is part of the next phase of the Defense Travel Management Office’s effort to simplify policy and make the JTR easier to navigate, easier to understand, and shorter in length.  Subsequent phases will address the remaining appendices.
