Nevada To Seek $300 Weekly Jobless Aid, Won't Add $100

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada is making plans to funnel $300 a week in federal coronavirus pandemic relief funds to out-of-work state residents.

But Gov. Steve Sisolak and state unemployment officials announced Tuesday the state doesn't have the budget to add another $100.

The officials said applicants probably won't begin receiving payments until at least four to six weeks after FEMA approves Nevada to be part of a lost wages aid program created by President Donald Trump.

They say payments would be retroactive to Aug. 1.
