Fiscal Year 2014 Meal and Lodging Rates

In-State or Out-of-State Meals and LodgingRefer to the GSA's federal Domestic Maximum Per Diem Rates.

If the city is not listed, but the county is listed; use the rate of the county.

* For areas not listed (city or county), the rates are:
  • Lodging In-State/Out-of-State: up to $85
  • Meals In-State/Out-of-State: up to $36

*We are now using a standard rate for both in-state and out-of-state travel to locations not listed on the GSA’s website.  It is no longer necessary to use the rate of the nearest locality for out-of-state travel to these locations.

Once the appropriate per diem meal rate is determined, please use the rate table below when claiming meals. For your convenience, this table includes daily incidentals, unlike the rate table found on the GSA's website.
