Due to the recent disasters in Nebraska, an infrequently used federal program has been made available to provide financial assistance to self-employed workers or workers otherwise not covered by regular unemployment insurance benefits payable through the Nebraska Department of Labor.

It is funded by the federal government and not through state unemployment taxes paid by employers.
