What you need to know

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.

Dorm rooms, meals and laundry services are offered to any Nebraskan that needs a place for self-quarantine and/or self-isolation away from home. All Dorm Facilities have access to medical care if needed.

Hotel rooms are offered to those Nebraskan's that are Healthcare Workers, First Responders and Correctional Officers.
