Brands provide relief to cash-strapped federal workers amid shutdown

T-Mobile, Toyota, and Airbnb are just a few of the brands that are pitching in to help.

A host of brands and organizations are mobilizing across the country to aid federal workers during the government shutdown.

As early as last month, when it became clear Congress and President Donald Trump wouldn’t be able to settle their differences, corporations and other organizations started throwing federal workers a lifeline.

Here are some the biggest highlights.

JPMorgan Chase

Toyota
Toyota is offering contract extensions for up to two months, or deferred lease payments, to government employees and anyone directly affected by the shutdown, such as government contractors and suppliers. The program applies for customers that purchased or leased a vehicle through Toyota Financial Services or Lexus Financial Services.

Airbnb
All of Airbnb's federal executive branch employees who share their home for three nights anytime between December 18, 2018 and March 18, 2019 will get paid an extra night on Airbnb — up to $110, which is the average per night income of the company's U.S. hosts.
