FEMA Announces Lost Wages Grant for New Jersey

Release Date:
septembre 5, 2020

WASHINGTON -- FEMA Administrator Pete Gaynor approved New Jersey for a FEMA grant under the Lost Wages Assistance program. FEMA’s grant funding will allow New Jersey to provide $300 per week -- on top of their regular unemployment benefit -- to those unemployed due to COVID-19. FEMA will work with New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy to implement a system to make this funding available to New Jersey residents.

On Aug. 8, 2020, President Trump made available up to $44 billion from FEMA’s Disaster Relief Fund to provide financial assistance to Americans who have lost wages due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Today, the state of New Jersey agreed to administer a lost wages program for its citizens who are unemployed due to COVID-19.

FEMA looks forward to working with the governors of additional states who agree to administer a lost wages program to bring financial relief to unemployed Americans.
