While in long-term training at the National Foreign Affairs Training Center, you may claim up to 100 percent of daily per diem for the first 60 days. This amount is reduced to 50 percent from day 61 to day 120, and to 25 percent thereafter. The reduction applies to both the lodging and the meals & incidental expenses (M & IE) portions of per diem. Please note that, as from Oct. 14, 2011, you were no longer able to claim lodging per diem to pay for mortgage interest, taxes and utilities while living in a house bought for use while on TDY.

Per diem rates for the D.C. area change seasonally. For Fiscal Year 2021 M&IE is $76, and the lodging portion is $257 in October 2020, $188 from November 1, 2020 to February 28, 2021; $258 from March 1, 2021 to June 30; $172 from July 1 to August 31; and $251 from September 1 to September 30, 2021. (See the GSA website at http://www.gsa.gov/portal/category/100120). Rates for FY 2022 will be published in September 2021.
