To my knowledge, the closest you can come is the LDA 1/2 method, and/or LDA (or GGA) +U. These are related to what is called the "Slater-Janak transition state approach", although not many people use it. My group found it useful for VXPS spectra of some lanthanides, see DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevMaterials.2.025001.
However, I am not sure that this is appropriate for EELS, unless you are using low energy electrons (e.g. 1-100 eV). For standard core-loss EELS the changes when using a Slater approach are so large that they will probably swamp these effects. Also important for conventional EELS are standard channelling issues -- to my knowledge no code currently can correctly include both the dynamical diffraction terms and the solid-state transition terms with full rigor.
