Well there's some good news as the state has been approved for an additional $300 per week for unemployment benefits.

According to our friends at ABC 7, the funds will be available for weeks of unemployment dating back to the beginning of August! July 31st was the last day of the additional federal benefits so this comes as a major relief for many.
