FEMA Announces Lost Wages Grant for Connecticut

Release Date:
八月 24, 2020

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

On Aug. 8, 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 Connecticut 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.
