Dislocation Allowance (DLA)

Dislocation Allowance (DLA) is intended to partially reimburse expenses associated with relocation of a service member when household moves are required for a PCS, for the Government's convenience, or as incident to an evacuation. It will not likely reimburse all relocation expenses, but it may be paid in advance.

Partial DLA in the amount of $581.51 (effective January 1, 2006) is paid to a service member ordered to occupy or vacate government family-type quarters due to privatization, renovation, or any reason other than PCS.

Exceptions to eligibility include National Guard and Reserve service members entering or exiting active duty, unless active duty is on for more than 20 weeks at one location, PCS allowances are authorized, and dependants are moved from the service member’s home to the new PCS or designated place.

For current rate information and additional allowances consult the DoD Per Diem, Travel and Transportation Allowance Committee DLA web site.
