Enroll in the Emergency Lodging Assistance Program
The hospitality industry plays an important role in assisting our communities during disasters. Through the Emergency Lodging Assistance program (ELA), CLC Lodging contracts with FEMA to provide housing for emergency workers and displaced victims in disaster situations.

How does ELA benefit my hotel?  

Pre-registered hotels are given priority opportunity by CLC for lodging needs during crisis situations. ELA is activated depending on the severity and need of an emergency event and you will be notified if you need to be prepared to welcome eligible guests. Additionally, you will not need to designate a rate until there is an actual need for emergency lodging rooms.  

Hotels chosen to house disaster relief workers may receive several benefits:
  • A higher occupancy opportunity during a disaster period, helping offset displaced guests.
  • A strong ADR: Most CLC Rapid Response customers book using government per diem rates.
  • If your hotel loses power or other services, or even sustained damage, workers may address your hotel’s issues first to accommodate work crews.
By registering for ELA, your hotel also receives five points towards your CLC CheckINN Certification Status.

Take action:
Now is a great time to review your hotel’s registration status for the ELA program.
  • If your hotel is not registered for the ELA program, click here to get started.
  • If your hotel is registered, click here to login and review your account information.
  • Once you’re logged in, we recommend setting your flag to “Accepting Survivors.” This ensures you are prepared ahead of future emergencies.
  • If you need help with your login or have any questions about the program, please call the CLC ELA Team at 866-545-9865.
Thank you for all you do to support your neighbors. Visit the CLC website for additional information or go to the ELA page on to learn more.
