2013 BAH Allowance for Kansas City, MO

Kansas City is home to many military servicemen and women. Did you know that some stationed in this area receive a Basic Allowance Housing (BAH). The basic allowance housing covers living expenses for those on active duty.

Not only can you apply for the VA loan when buying a house, but you might be able to use your housing allowance to cover your mortgage payments, too. (AKA live for FREE.) It is a pretty sweet deal.

The BAH is designed to assist in those situations.
