Help California's Working Families Get Ahead!

California has the highest rate of poverty of any state in the nation — but now millions of hardworking Californians are finally getting the chance to get ahead.

Cal EITC, the California Earned Income Tax Credit, is a cash back tax credit that puts money back into the pockets of working families and individuals. The majority of Cal EITC dollars, $8 out of every $10, goes to families with children — many of whom are single mothers.

As our nation's largest and most successful anti-poverty program, the EITC can have a huge impact on people's lives.

Struggling families can get money to start a savings account, purchase a used car, catch-up on bills, or invest in education. It stimulates the local economy because recipients spend it on goods and services in their communities. Studies also show that children whose families receive a boost in income from the EITC perform better in school and have better health outcomes.

CalEITC4Me is a statewide campaign to spread awareness of the Earned Income Tax Credit. Our goal is to ensure that the entire $400 million allocated by the state for the Cal EITC reaches eligible families and that more people file for the federal EITC. But, we can't do it without you.

Sign and join the campaign to help spread the word about Cal EITC. Together we can help working families get ahead and tackle the growing inequality in California.
