Extra Credit Grant Deadline Extended

On May 24th, Governor Cooper signed into law S.B. 172 (Session Law), which extends the deadline to apply for the Extra Credit Grant program to Thursday, July 1st, 2021.

Most North Carolina families with children received a $335 coronavirus relief payment last fall to help with virtual schooling and childcare costs. Eligible families who did not receive the $335 check have another chance to apply through July 1, 2021

The $335 payments are for individuals with a dependent child who was 16 or younger at the end of 2019.

If you did not file a 2019 state return because your gross income for 2019 did not exceed the state’s filing requirements for your filing status (generally $10,000 per year if you are single and $20,000 per year if you are married), you may still be eligible for the $335 payment if you apply by July 1. If you have already received the $335 grant, you are not eligible under the new law.

Go the North Carolina Department of Revenue website at NCDOR.gov/extracredit for details and to apply.
