The new legislation specifically includes $21 million for improved interconnectivity for North Carolina students, and a stimulus of $335 to anyone with a child under the age of 18, additional funds to COVID19 vaccine research, PPE, testing supplies, and an additional $50 a week to those receiving unemployment aid.
Once signed by Governor Cooper, the $335 stimulus payments would be distributed to NC residents by Dec. 15 of 2020.
