It’s money workers can use for groceries, rent, utilities and other bills,” Edward Durkee, president & CEO of Goodwill Central Coast, said. “We want people who may qualify for EITC to have all the information they need to get it right.”

Preparation assistance is available in the Goodwill Central Coast Career Centers located in Santa Cruz, Monterey and San Luis Obispo counties.
