  • Self-employed
  • Independent Contractors
  • "Gig" workers such as Uber and Lyft drivers
  • Employees of religious organizations whose employment has been impacted by COVID-19
  • Those who lack sufficient work history to file a claim or have been disqualified for state benefits but who are impacted directly by COVID-19
