The 2017 Overseas Housing Allowance (OHA) Utility Survey is now available to fill out online. Every March, the Department of Defense (DOD) asks for servicemembers (or spouses) to complete this survey to help determine the future amount of OHA utility funding. This funding helps with utilities and recurring maintenance for those residing off-installation in privately leased housing.

Participation is voluntary; however, maximum participation is encouraged in order to have a more realistic average of utility costs in your host nation. The survey takes approximately 30 minutes to complete, and it is advised to have actual bills or records from the last 12 months for the most accurate information. All responses are confidential, and only group statistics will be reported.
