Includes information on newly signed Families First Coronavirus Response Act (U.S.)

On 3/18/2020, President Trump officially signed into law H.R. 6201, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, making official billions of dollars in aid and relief for small business owners and employees dealing with the Coronavirus outbreak. Follow this link to review resources approved by H.R. 6201.  

FAQs for Business Owners: The follow link provides some of the most detailed and specific information on what businesses (and employees) are eligible for and who is exempt from having to offer certain benefits. Scroll down for a chart of paid leave requirements (this chart can be downloaded to share with others). Click HERE to access the page. The Congressional Research Service (CRS) has also put together a very informative 3-page explainer of who is eligible for which benefits. Access it HERE.
Nutritional Programs: Families dealing with food and nutritional access issues can find more information on new benefits available HERE. These programs will be run by the state and apply predominantly to those who already receive SNAP and WIC benefits. The USDA has also allowed schools to offer meals outside of the school setting. Kansas has applied for and received the necessary Congregate Meal Waiver that allows for flexibility in school meal delivery. Many school districts are already putting in place plans to offer meal pick up or delivery options but if you are unsure of how to proceed, the following link has some great information. Read more HERE.
Tax Delays: The Treasury Department issued guidance that gives individuals and business owners relief from tax payments. People are still required to file their 2019 taxes by April 15 but payments of to $1 million will be deferred until July 15. Click HERE to learn more about the IRS guidance.
Housing Evictions & Utility Shut-Offs: The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development will suspend foreclosures and evictions for 60 days on properties with mortgages backed by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Additionally, the FCC has encouraged all telephone and broadband providers to delay any service disconnections for at least 60 days. Governor Kelly has also mandated that all utilities not disconnect utilities due to missed payments at this time through at least May 1st.

Workforce Updates- Unemployment Resources/Employment Opportunities

Kansas Department of Labor

The Kansas Department of Labor recognizes the impact of COVID-19 on employers and workers alike. We are here to assist as we tackle this challenge together. We will continue to update this web page with available resources and contact information as it becomes available.

Businesses may be exploring reducing production as a result of supply chain challenges related to COVID-19.  The Shared Work Program is an excellent tool to use in lieu of a temporary, total layoff of employees. It allows for partial work week and partial unemployment benefits to employees. To participate, normal weekly work hours for employees must be reduced by 20% (no more than 40%) and apply to at least 10% of employees.
For more information, visit  or email

Individual Filing for Unemployment Insurance Benefits.
If you are not working or working reduced hours due to COVID-19, you may be eligible for Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits. The UI program was established as a means to protect those who are involuntarily unemployed from the financial burdens and dangers that come with being unemployed. It is designed to be a short-term assistance program and may be able to help those whose employment has been adversely impacted by COVID-19.
Check out our UI and COVID-19 Fact Sheet and apply for benefits online at
Unemployment insurance benefits may be available to individuals who are involuntarily unemployed as a result of COVID-19. The amount of the benefit will vary based upon the amount of money that the individual has previously earned but will be between $122 and $488 per week.  At this time, individuals can receive up to a maximum of 16 weeks of benefits.
