Residents in Door and Kewaunee counties who were unemployed or underemployed over the summer may qualify for additional assistance. The Lost Wages Assistance program benefits those who were jobless or worked part-time due to the pandemic. The additional benefits issued through the Federal Emergency Management Agency would cover the period from August 1st through September 5th. Jim Golembeski, the Executive Director of the Bay Area Workforce Development Board, says those funds will help offset part of other federal aid that ended in July.
