The Embassy of the Republic of Cabo Verde in Washington D.C. alerts to all Cabo Verdeans residents in the State of Massachusetts, that the Government of the State has approved last night an instrument called "Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA)". 

All the interested claimants will be able to file for Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) beginning at 8:30 am today 4/20/2020

They can do so by applying at:<http://www.mass.gov/pua>

PUA is a program open to the following individuals:

 * Self-employed individuals, including gig workers, freelancers, and independent contractors

  *  Those seeking part-time employment

  *  Claimants that have an insufficient work history to qualify for benefits

 * And claimants that have been laid off from churches and religious institutions and are not eligible for benefits under state law, as PUA is a separate program from regular unemployment insurance.
