HEIDELBERG, Germany -- U.S. Army Europe’s Overseas Housing Allowance Survey’s deadline has been extended until 11 May. The survey is intended to measure the amount of compensation service members are receiving from OHA to live in privately leased or rented residential housing.

All service members, regardless of service affiliation, who reside in off-post housing, are requested to complete the survey in order to accurately gauge the amount of OHA service members are receiving. This survey is critical for ensuring OHA rates are properly set at overseas locations and directly affects the amount of housing allowance each service member is entitled to.

Spouses are authorized to take the survey if the service member is deployed.

Take the official survey.
