When did the additional Lost Wages Assistance (LWA) start, and how long did it last?

The program was created by a Presidential Memorandum on August 8, 2020. LWA was available to eligible claimants for the weeks ending August 1, 2020 through September 5, 2020. FEMA notified KDOL that the last payable week for LWA is the week ending September 5, 2020. At this time, KDOL may not accept any new LWAP claims.
