The 2015 Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) are scheduled to be released around December 15th.
The DOD has proposed that service members BAH changes from covering 100% of housing cost to just 95%. This change wont happen all at once. In general, BAH goes up a little each year to keep of with the cost of living. It’s likely these increases will be slowed each year, until BAH only covers 95% of housing expenses. For 2015 BAH will only cover 99% of housing costs.
In some areas BAH may go down. However, BAH rates are protected through Rate-protection Plan. So, if BAH goes down in your area it will only effect service members that are newly PCSing to the area.
