NC Virtual Schooling Assistance

Governor Roy Cooper signed into law the Coronavirus Relief Act 3.0 on September 4, 2020. Included in the bill is a grant program to help families pay for virtual schooling and child-care costs during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Individuals who reported at least one child age 16 or younger on their 2019 North Carolina individual income tax return, will receive a $335 payment automatically. Even if you did not file a return, but are eligible, you may apply by October 15, 2020 in order to receive the grant payment. Get more information along with the application on the NCDOR website.

Also, some North Carolina tax returns did not accurately report the number of qualifying children. If you had a child age 16 or younger, check line 10a of your 2019 North Carolina Tax Return. If your return indicated “0” on line 10a, but you claimed a qualifying child on your return, then the return must be amended prior to the October 15, 2020 deadline in order to qualify for the Grant payment.
