California Puts Money Back Into the Pockets of Millions of Working Californians Amid COVID-19 Recession

Sacramento, CA...Governor Gavin Newsom announced that over $1 billion has gone back into the pockets of more than 3.6 million working Californians and their families through the California Earned Income Tax Credit (CalEITC) and Young Child Tax Credit (YCTC). He also announced that Californians will get the raise they deserve, by declining to use his authority to suspend the scheduled minimum wage increase in 2021, up to $14 per hour.




The COVID-19 recession has not only dealt a swift and broad-based blow to California’s economy – it has taken a disproportionate toll on low-income Californians, worsening income disparities that predate the pandemic. The expansion of the CalEITC and the creation of the YCTC have provided much-needed financial relief to millions of Californians, especially families with young children.

As of Monday, more than 3.6 million filers claimed the CalEITC and YCTC, providing over $1 billion back to hardworking Californians.

“The CalEITC is providing critical relief for millions of low-income Californians and their families, many of whom were struggling before the COVID-19 pandemic and have been hit especially hard during this time,” said Governor Newsom. “The CalEITC and the new Young Child Tax Credit are helping families make ends meet.”

CalEITC-eligible families with children under the age of six can also receive up to $1,000 more by claiming the YCTC, established through the budget signed by Governor Newsom last year. Of the over $1 billion distributed through CalEITC and YCTC, $370 million was credited to 409,000 taxpayers who claimed the Young Child Tax Credit. This means money back in the pockets of almost half a million California families to help relieve their economic strain and address childhood poverty, building stronger, brighter futures.

Last year, Governor Newsom significantly expanded CalEITC, investing $1 billion to help Californians become more financially secure. He expanded the program so Californians making up to $30,000 per year now qualify, and added a new Young Child Tax Credit for families with children under the age of six.

“The CalEITC is an important investment in California’s families and our future,” said First Partner Jennifer Siebel Newsom. “I am grateful to the countless community organizations and volunteers who partnered with our Administration to ensure this benefit reached those who need it most, particularly California’s kids.”

Governor Newsom also announced that although current economic conditions authorize him to suspend the scheduled increase in the minimum wage for 2021, he will move the increase forward as reflected in the 2020 state budget. The minimum wage will increase on January 1, to $13.00 per hour for businesses with 25 or fewer employees, and to $14.00 per hour for businesses with more than 25 employees.

“As we continue our efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19, we must also ensure that as our economy recovers, all Californians can benefit in its growth,” said Governor Newsom. “Not allowing this increase to go forward will only make life harder for those Californians who have already borne a disproportionate share of the economic hardship caused by this pandemic. Many of them are on the front lines of the pandemic, providing child care, working in our hospitals and nursing facilities and making sure there’s food on grocery store shelves.”

    You two can get off your knees. How embarrassing to be two anal lickers like you.
    Yeah, he's the best. Opened up the state, didn't make mask mandatory, now because he couldn't get more money from the Feds he opened up with not knowing how to do it and HE MADE IT EVEN WORSE!!!
    Then he has a master plan about our fire water resources and what's he do? Puts all the work on individual communities while going ahead with the twin tunnels of stealing more water from the Delta. BUT he's tearing out DN from the Klamath River, he wants all across CA to let more water flow for fish migration...so why is he stealing trillions of gallons from the Delta and shipping it South? Future Favors...why hasn't Ca built a major damn since Malone's, when the state was 19,000,000 people less than now? And CA tax payers? We only owe $78,000 a piece to pay off our debts. And you two disgusting anus and scrotum suckers think he's just awesome.
    Congrats, you two take the dumb and dumber awards for the Month of July
