GSA Hikes 2024 Per Diem, Lodging Allowance

The U.S. General Services Administration for fiscal year 2024 increased its standard allowable per diem rates for federal travelers by $9 to $166, GSA announced Wednesday.

The increase is due to a $9 year-over-year increase in the lodging allowance to $107. The standard allowable rate for meals and incidentals held steady at $59 per day.

The rate takes effect Oct. 1, 2023, through Sept. 30, 2024.
