Website to Provide Information for Small Businesses

The City has created a one-stop resource for employers and employees outlining all existing resources, contacts for assistance, and to provide updates on the City’s growing response to the business and worker communities. Website: www.oewd.org/covid19.


The SFMTA brings your customers to you on Muni, keeps the streets moving and manages the curb space. We know small businesses have many questions right now and we’re here to help you find resources offered by the City and County of San Francisco.

Where do I find information on Small Business Loans and Grants?

Can I be evicted from my commercial property during the Shelter in Place order?

How do I safely get back to business in the “new normal?”

More information about these and opportunities such as deferring business taxes and licensing fees, accessing free COVID-19 testing for essential employees and resources for self-employed individuals can be found at oewd.org/covid19
