SCHOFIELD BARRACKS, Hawaii – The Housing Service Office is moving all TLA, or temporary lodging allowance, briefs to the Teams virtual platform system.

TLA is intended to partially pay a service member for higher-than-normal expenses incurred by a service member or dependent while occupying temporary lodging while outside of the continental United States.

Soldiers moving to or from Hawaii on orders may be eligible for arrival, renewal and departure TLA.

All Soldiers must attend a mandatory TLA brief. Due to COVID-19, the briefs are offered virtually.

TLA briefs are held every weekday:

  • 8 a.m.: Departure TLA
  • 9 a.m.: Arrival TLA
  • 11 a.m.: Renewal TLA

To attend a brief, use the QR code or the following Teams link: https://dod.teams.microsoft.us/l/meetup-join/19:dod:meeting_58bb4a2e95344a15b5c640e5db0c7430@thread.v2/0?context=%7B%22Tid%22:%22fae6d70f-954b-4811-92b6-0530d6f84c43%22,%22Oid%22:%22ad20a3ae-9f3c-4bb3-a476-4458fc5824e8%22%7D.
