Members of the National Guard and United States Military Reserves do not receive a housing allowance when performing weekend drill duty.

Guard and Reserve members on active duty for less than 140 days receive a different type of housing allowance than active duty members. This type of housing allowance is known as Basic Allowance for Housing, Type II, and pays less, on average, than Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) Type I, which is based upon a member's rank, dependency status, and location of assignment.

BAH Type II, on the other hand is not dependent upon location of assignment. It is the same, regardless of where the National Guard/Reserve member is stationed.

National Guard and Reserve military personnel who are on active duty for 140 days or longer (with the exception of active duty for training), receive BAH Type I, the same housing allowance received by active duty members.

"Partial Rate" BAH is payable to members without dependents who are living in government quarters (barracks), who do not receive any other type of BAH.

Below is the Fiscal Year 2003 chart for BAH, Type II, received by members of the National Guard and Reserves when performing active duty service of less than 140 continuous days:
