Dr. Chhoda provides the latest status on the $400/week across several states.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency, which is overseeing program funding, had approved 13 states to offer the extra unemployment benefits as of around noon ET on Friday.
Those states are: Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Utah.
Seven others — Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, California, Indiana, Texas and West Virginia have applied— a FEMA spokeswoman said Thursday.
Officials in around 10 other states have signaled their intent to apply for the aid in recent days. South Dakota has said it will not apply for the booster.
Kentucky and Montana, for example, are giving $400 instead of the prevailing $300. Some states expect weeks to go by before workers receive the assistance, while Arizona started paying it this week.
