By BBN Staff: On August 3, 2020, Belizeans began submitting applications for phase 2 of the unemployment relief program.
The Unemployment Relief Program offers financial relief to workers who have been laid off because of COVID-19 and self-employed persons who have lost their jobs and income as a result of the impact of the COVID-19.
The financial relief to be provided in Phase 2 will be the same as what was provided in Phase 1: $150 every two weeks for a 12-week period.
