If the federal program does not exhaust the LWA grant funding, payments will end on December 26, 2020.

Hawaiʻi will apply to participate in a new unemployment insurance plus up program called the Lost Wages Assistance or the LWA Program.

Funding comes from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

The state Employment Security Department applied for the grant last week.

The extra $300 a week will be available to anyone receiving at least $100 per week in regular state unemployment compensation, Pandemic Unemployment Assistance, Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation, Extended Benefits, Unemployment Compensations for Federal Employees, Unemployment Compensation for Ex-Servicemembers, Short-Time Compensation, Trade Readjustment Allowance or payments under the Self-Employment Assistance program.

President Trump ordered FEMA earlier this month to distribute up to $44 billion to states after Congress failed to extend a program that had provided $600 a week in extra jobless benefits.

President Donald Trump signed a memorandum August 8 that authorized the program.

Upon approval, Hawaiʻi will offer an additional unemployment compensation benefit of $300 per week to eligible unemployment recipients. "I'm taking this action to maximize all available federal funds to help people in Hawaiʻi who are unemployed because of COVID-19", said Gov. Ige. "We will continue to work with FEMA and the U.S. Department of Labor to pursue any additional funds for Washingtonians that may remain after the initial three-week period of benefits are distributed".
