Monday, The Raleigh News & Observer reported that more than a million parents in North Carolina would get $335 from the state government to help offset costs during the coronavirus pandemic.
The Extra Credit Grant for North Carolina is to help with expenses related to schools being closed for in-person instruction, according to the newspaper.
The money granted to the state was part of the CARES Act.
Republicans and Democrats together worked on this happening for parents.
Officials say not every parent will get a check, and if you make too much money, you won’t get it either. If you didn’t make enough money to file taxes, you would have to apply for the check.
