Our Program


CALEITC4ME is an unprecedented statewide outreach campaign to encourage low-income Californians to claim the state earned income tax credit as well as the federal credit. This statewide campaign brings together multiple state agencies and a broad coalition of local and statewide community, faith, civic, education, workforce, business, and media leaders committed to fostering economic opportunity and financial security for Californians barely making ends meet.
