The submission deadline is now Oct. 21 at 4 p.m. The funding is available because of Coronavirus Relief Fund dollars the County received.

In September, the N.C.

A remote learning facility is defined as “a building or space used to house school-age children during the school year for the purpose of facilitating online or remote learning.”
