General Public Housing Update

As we work to find a new long term location, general public housing is NOT available at this time. We understand the hardship this may cause you and your loved ones and we appreciate your patience as we work hard to remedy the situation.

The Nebraska Accommodation Project (NAP) is designed to provide temporary housing for any Nebraskan as a result of COVID-19 exposure.

NAP provides short term housing for quarantine and/or isolation locations outside of anyone's usual household in order to protect a household member with a health condition that puts them at high risk from exposure to COVID-19.

Applications 

 

All guests of NAP must meet the following criteria:

  • Resident of Nebraska
  • Exposure to a COVID-19 positive person
  • Lack of resources to find alternate housing for themselves
  • High risk medical condition in a full time household member
