Families most in need of help with remote learning and childcare expenses were set to receive nothing.
North Carolina’s Extra Credit Grants provided checks for $335 to eligible North Carolina families to help with remote learning and child care expenses incurred due to the pandemic. When a group of legal advocates discovered thousands of families in need had missed out on the grants, they pursued a legal remedy that would give families who were excluded a chance to receive assistance. Coforma onboarded a team overnight, developed a functional application in three days, and provided security and maintenance to the live site enabling the processing of almost 25,000 applications over a period of a few weeks.
