To implement this action, AF Lodging will create special rate codes to discount the daily lodging rate to 1/30th of the member’s authorized BAH rate, beginning Aug. 31, 2021, after DAF service members reach the end of their Temporary Living Expenses (TLE) authorization. The following guidelines apply to this authorization.
An operations guide will be provided to lodging management to include guidance for guest reimbursement actions to cover gaps in dates resulting from TLE verification and implementation of the special rate codes.
