Additional Dollars for Unemployed

Those unemployed due to the COVID-19 pandemic who are receiving unemployment benefits will soon see an extra $300 per week. The Federal Emergency Management Agency said Tuesday that it approved an additional $53-million grant to Hawaii to assist those out of work. This comes after nearly $200-million in funding was announced last month. The funds come from the Lost Wages Assistance Program through FEMA’s Disaster Relief Fund.
