Teacher training program was cancelled because of COVID-19, do I qualify for unemployment?

I was supposed to start the Teaching Fellows program in NYC on June 15 which has now been cancelled due to COVID-19. Do I qualify for unemployment or PUA? I currently live in GA but used to be a resident of Michigan (still have a MI license). Also, I previously had an unemployment claim in Michigan that began March 8 but I did not claim anything for two weeks and I believe the claim closed. I'm not sure what my best next step should be or if I've put myself into a strange situation.

You should contact Michigan and give them your status. All states coordinate with one another. They will eventually catch up and you can only file in one at a time. Thinking that it closed will not do. Continue claiming with Michigan if you qualify.
