Stimulus Funds Not Circulating as Unemployment Reaches Historic Level

April 13, 2020

The job centers lobbies are closed statewide to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The agency encourages residents to apply for their benefits on line. Some centers have made paper unemployment applications available to those people without computers, for them to mail back or push through the centers’ mail slots or doors. (AP Photo/Rogelio V.

The numbers are staggering. 16 million Americans over the last three weeks have applied for unemployment insurance due to the coronavirus pandemic. People are still awaiting stimulus checks, and small businesses and non-profits are applying or SBA disaster loans.

Funds are not circulating to those in need as promised and hoped for small business people who are feeling the pain financially from the stay at home orders and the deadly virus. AURN’s April Ryan speaks with Congress member Barbara Lee (D-CA) who talks about an overloaded system and efforts of the Congressional Black Caucus to ensure all businesses and applicants have access to emergency funding.
