    Last Friday, hundreds of thousands of federal employees went without paychecks. We know that some of you in our host community are included in that group, and we want to help.

    Starting today, we’re offering all federal executive branch employees who are also hosts some financial support. If you host either one Experience or three nights in your listing between December 18, 2018 and March 18, 2019, we’ll give you up to $110 USD extra on us. You can sign up here—and get additional details here.

    $110 is equivalent to the average amount U.S. hosts make hosting one night. All qualifying hosts will receive the payout shortly after the program ends.

    At Airbnb, we take our responsibility to you seriously. And the reason why is simple: We’re about far more than travel—we are a community. We’re proud to offer our support and stand with you through the remainder of the shutdown and beyond.
