Anyone that is an Air BNB Host who has figured out how to apply for Federal Benefits (money relief) from the Feds now that there is a bill passed for Coronavirus Emergency funds from Congress? I'm told that you can apply for "Unemployment Benefits as a HOST?" But find little info on that doing a search this am. I am California based home host. HELP.
I wonder if a Small Business Administration loan is a potential resource for you, @Rebecca1252 . Pretty sure the unemployment system will not be revamped to include self-employed or small business owners. Given the possibility of scams being promoted, I would be careful of such ideas. All that being said, if you find a credible source for "unemployment insurance" for hosts, do let us know. I just check the CA EDD (Employment Development Department) and do not see any change in eligibility requirements.
not an option for me I owe on my house no way they will give me a loan when I can't even pay my mortgage now or utilities. Panetta town hall call last night said that "Federal Pandemic Unemployment Insurance" is what they approved for tourism and service businesses. Thanks, hope we all find it soon and get relief.
