Office of the Secretary of Defense (Health Affairs)/TRICARE Management Activity
This notice is to advise interested parties of the extension of a Military Health System (MHS) demonstration project entitled ``TRICARE Demonstration Project for the State of Alaska.''

The demonstration was to be conducted for up to five years after the start of health care delivery under the contract and therefore is scheduled to end on March 31, 2009. The demonstration project will now be extended for one additional year (March 31, 2010).
Publication of Housing Price Inflation Adjustment Under 50 U.S.C. App. 531
The Servicemembers Civil Relief Act, as codified at 50 U.S.C. App. 531, prohibits a landlord from evicting a Service member (or the Service member's family) from a residence during a period of military service except by court order. The law as originally passed by Congress applied to dwellings with monthly rents of $2400 or less. The law requires the Department of Defense to adjust this amount annually to reflect inflation, and to publish the new amount in the Federal Register. We have applied the inflation index required by the statute. The maximum monthly rental amount for 50 U.S.C. App. 531(a)(1)(A)(ii) as of January 1, 2009, will be $2,932.31.
