NYC Covid-19 Hotel Program - Up to 28 Days FREE

Covid-19 Hotel Program - New York City

On Friday, May 15, 2020, the City of New York will open registration for its FREE COVID-19 Hotel Program. The COVID-19 Hotel Program provides select individuals and groups (e.g., healthcare workers) a place to stay to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

The City of New York's COVID-19 Hotel Program provides free hotel stays, up to 28 days, to eligible New Yorkers who cannot isolate where they live and frontline workers in the healthcare industry who wish to reduce the risk of transmission at home. This will help New York City stop the spread of COVID-19.

The City of New York is proud to support frontline workers in the healthcare industry by providing free hotel stays to those currently working to address the COVID-19 crisis.
