In addition, the Federal Travel Regulation (FTR) allows for actual expense reimbursement as provided in §§ 301–11.300 through 301– 11.306. For FY 2018, no new nonstandard area locations were added. The standard CONUS lodging allowance rate will increase from $91 to $93. The M&IE reimbursement rate tiers were not revised for FY 2018.
