Gov. Newsom announces new $600 ‘Golden State Stimulus’ for low-income Californians

FRESNO, Calif. – On Wednesday, Governor Gavin Newsom announced a new budget proposal to help low-income Californians.

The Golden State Stimulus is a quick $ 600 cash payment that will initially be distributed to approximately 4 million Californians. Some could get at least $ 1,200 in direct relief.

The $ 600 would go to taxpayers who received a California Earned Income Tax Credit (CalEITC) in 2020, as well as 2020 taxpayers with Individual Tax Identification Numbers (ITINs) who are eligible for and receive the CalEITC in 2021.

Those in the state who earn less than $ 30,000 may also be eligible for CalETIC.

Newsom’s new stimulus package would also go to low-income Californians who cannot receive the federal stimulus.

In addition to the Golden State stimulus, Governor Newsom is still striving to protect Californians from eviction. He said he will see to it that the state’s $ 2.6 billion in government rental support is properly distributed.
