Governor Cooper Urges Congress to Extend Unemployment Benefits

News ,


Governor Cooper wrote to the North Carolina Congressional delegation urging them to extend the Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation program, which is the supplemental $600 weekly payments to those who are out of work because of COVID-19. Right now, that program will expire at the end of the week.

In the letter, Governor Cooper urged state legislators to re-evaluate North Carolina’s own unemployment compensation to support people who find themselves sidelined because of this virus.  Read Governor Cooper’s letter to North Carolina members of Congress.
