FEMA approves extra $300 per week grant assistance for Wisconsin`s unemployed

LWA Overview

The Lost Wages Assistance (LWA) program is a federal program that provides an additional $300 per week to eligible claimants who certify that they are unemployed or partially unemployed as a result of COVID-19.

If approved, this new LWA payment would be in addition to Regular Unemployment Insurance (UI), Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA), or Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC) payments currently available to unemployed Wisconsin workers.

Claimants do not need to file a separate application to receive LWA.
