Great news to share! The NC Extra Credit Grant Application Process is now open for North Carolina families to apply for $335 by going to 335forNC.com. The deadline is Monday, Dec. 7, 2020, at 2 p.m. Charlotte Center for Legal Advocacy and its partners, Robinson Bradshaw and Legal Aid of North Carolina, took successful legal action to reopen the application process for eligible families to apply for one $335 Extra Credit Grant per household. Eligible N.C. families who missed the original October deadline are encouraged to go to 335forNC.com as soon as possible to apply for a $335 Extra Credit Grant before the deadline, Monday, Dec. 7, 2020, at 2 p.m.
The NC Extra Credit Grant program is made possible by federal coronavirus relief funds. It provides financial support for families struggling to meet the demands of educating and caring for their children during the COVID-19 pandemic. I found out about this program from Charlotte Center For Legal Advocacy years ago because of their amazing community work. Long story short, Charlotte Center for Legal Advocacy helps people in the Charlotte, North Carolina, region who cannot afford legal services, but desperately need them. Without legal representation in civil matters, thousands of families can lose access to financial security, healthcare, housing and opportunity. Learn more about them here.
