BAH while doing OHARP?

#1
Leaving for OCS on Feb 4, so right around the corner. It looks like OHARP is inevitable for SNAs after graduation, so I’m trying to plan accordingly. I was recruited through the St Louis district since that was where my university was, but I live in Chicago with my parents now that I recently graduated. Can I choose to OHARP in Chicago? I have no place to stay in the St. Louis recruiting district.

Also, say I do get OHARP’d in Chicago, will I receive BAH while living with my parents?

When I commissioned back in 2015, you just had to get the recruiting office you wanted to go to sign off saying they will take responsibility over you. Though I'm not sure if its the same now. So i would go ahead and start calling around. In regards to BAH, unfortunately you will not get the BAH for your location. It is some set amount (mine was around $500 or $600). Let me know if you have any other question!

When signing up for BAH too, it also specifically notes you that you can't be "renting" from parents or relatives.

Is it a set amount only while you are enrolled in OHARP?

Did OHARP last summer after OCS. Go talk to Stucon about changing your location. Honestly, they don't care so it shouldn't be an issue where you go. It was a set amount of BAH for me as well.

OHARP is NO-COST TAD. So think of it as free leave IVO your desired leave location.
OHARP returns Navy Officers to their hometown for 14 to 90 days on either permissive no cost temporary additional duty (TAD) orders or while on leave in conjunction with permanent change of station (PCS) orders.
Your BAH is related to where you LIVE...it's either where you came from or where you are going, NOT where you are temporarily assigned.
