DES was informed by FEMA that LWA will end this week (benefit week ending September 5). DES has requested and received its weekly allocation for this last week. Starting next week, for the benefit week ending September 12, eligible claimants will receive their weekly benefit amount without LWA. Those who have not yet filed weekly claims or whose claims have yet to be processed may still be eligible for LWA. DES will continue to work with FEMA to provide retroactive LWA payments for eligible weeks between the week ending August 1 and the week ending September 5, as funding allows.
