Federal Unemployment Benefits End

Federal pandemic unemployment benefits expired in North Carolina, meaning many unemployed people will no longer receive an extra $300 weekly. Pisgah Legal COO Jackie Kiger spoke with WLOS ABC 13 about what this means for WNC residents. If you need help with rent and utilities, please contact Buncombe County DHHS at 828-250-5500 or if outside Buncombe, apply for NC HOPE assistance at https://www.rebuild.nc.gov/hope-program.
