The fund, launched April 3, 2020, offered unrestricted, needs based grants to those eligible professionals. By April 30, 2020, USTA SC had made 123 grants to pros through the state.

Disability Insurance
If you're unable to work due to having or being exposed to COVID-19 (certified by a medical professional), you can file a Disability Insurance (DI) claim. DI provides short-term benefit payments to eligible workers who have a full or partial loss of wages due to a non-work-related illness, injury, or pregnancy. Benefit amounts are approximately 60-70 percent of wages (depending on income) and range from $50-$1,300 a week.
