Coronavirus Relief Act 3.0 – $335 for NC Families With Child

— Written By N.C. Cooperative Extension
Money“On September 4, Governor Roy Cooper signed into law the Coronavirus Relief Act 3.0, which was passed by the General Assembly. The law includes the Extra Credit Grant program to be administered by the North Carolina Department of Revenue. Most North Carolina families with children are eligible for a $335 coronavirus relief payment to help with virtual schooling and childcare costs.
The $335 payment is for individuals with a dependent child who was 16 or younger at the end of 2019.
If you filed a 2019 North Carolina individual income tax return reporting a qualifying child, you will get the payment automatically by December 15.
Individuals with a qualifying child who did not file a 2019 state return because their gross income for 2019 did not exceed the state’s filing requirements for their filing status (generally $10,000 per year if single and $20,000 per year if married) may still be eligible for the $335 payment, but they must apply.
Applications are due by October 15, 2020.
Help more North Carolinians receive $335 in coronavirus relief by sharing the word about the October 15 application deadline.
