As the government shutdown continues into its 26 day, Airbnb wants to help its hosts who are federal workers.

The company announced a new program Wednesday called "A Night on Us."

All federal employee hosts who share their home for three nights anytime between Dec. 18, 2018 and Mar. 18, 2019 will get paid an extra night on the company. Hosts could see up to $110, which is the average per night income for hosts, Airbnb says. The program is also available to Experience hosts.

Federal employee hosts, either Homes or Experience Hosts, can sign up for the program on the Airbnb's website.
