banner: CalEITC4Me, a project of Golden State Opportunity

CalEITC4Me is a groundbreaking, public-private program focused on the California Earned Income Tax Credit (CalEITC), a cashback tax credit that puts money back into the pockets of low-income Californians.

Our multi-channel, multicultural outreach campaign builds awareness of and claims for the CalEITC each year.

While any adult with an income under $30,000 can qualify for the CalEITC, we focus on the hardest to reach Californians who typically don’t file taxes or claim the credit, including:

  • Single mothers of color
  • People who earn less than $12,000
  • Seniors who earn less than $13,850
  • People with limited English proficiency
  • People who are newly eligible for CalEITC, including young people  and immigrants who use Individual Tax Identification Numbers (ITIN)
Golden State Opportunity

CalEITC4Me works. Between 2015 and 2020, GSO helped more than 7.5 million California households claim the CalEITC, putting more than $1.9 billion dollars back in people’s pockets. In that time,  Californians have also increased their federal EITC claims by $400 million. Learn more at
