The Charlotte Observer published an article featuring the COVID-19 relief lawsuit filed pro bono by Robinson Bradshaw on behalf of Legal Aid of North Carolina, the Charlotte Center for Legal Advocacy and several low-income state residents. As a result of the suit, a judge recently ordered the North Carolina Department of Revenue to extend the deadline for low-income families to apply for the $335 Extra Credit Grants coronavirus relief aid. More information about the suit is available here.
Eligible North Carolina families now have until 2 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 7, to apply for the relief, which is intended to help alleviate costs associated with remote learning and childcare needs as a result of the pandemic. Robinson Bradshaw attorney Adam K. Doerr shared with the Observer that more than 10,000 families have applied for the aid since the process was reopened.
