NCDHHS is working with NCDOR to share information about the 2020 NC Extra Credit Grant. Please consider sharing the following information and flyer with those in your communities who may still be eligible to apply for a COVID-19 relief payment.
Most North Carolina families with children received an automatic $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 May 31, 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 May 31. If you have already received the $335 grant, you are not eligible to re-apply.
NCDHHS is encouraging families who have not done so already to take action before May 31 to receive a payment. This video explains eligibility and walks you through the short application process. Go to www.ncdor.gov/extracredit for details and to apply.
