NORTH CAROLINA. (WECT) – The deadline for families to apply for the $335 coronavirus relief through the Extra Credit Grant Program is May 31.
Most North Carolina families with children have already received this payment; those who didn’t and are eligible can still apply.
The one-off COVID-19 relief payment is for individuals with a dependent child 16 years old or younger at the end of 2019 to provide support for virtual schooling and child-care costs during the pandemic. Those who have already received the payment are no longer eligible to apply.
People who did not file a state tax return in 2019 because their gross income did not exceed the state’s filing requirements (typically $10,000 per year for single filers and $20,000 per year for married filers) may still be eligible for the $335 payment and are encouraged to apply online or by mail by May 31 (mailed applications must be postmarked by May 31, 2021).
