Immediate Aid Package for San Francisco SMBs 
(Small and Medium Sized Businesses) 

The immediate impact to San Francisco Small and Medium businesses is dire as many companies have already begun laying off their workforces due to the necessary closures to stem the spread of COVID-19.

Surviving the virus and trying to minimize the impact to our local health infrastructure is only the first step. 

Mayor London Breed and the San Francisco supervisors must come together with a plan for immediate 0% interest loans up to $100,000 for SF based SMBs to allow companies to continue paying their employees and bills. 

New York City by example is offering $75,000 to their local businesses with under 100 employees. San Francisco’s current plan to delay of payroll and city tax and $10,000 each for 100 businesses is not enough. 

We are a broad coalition of San Francisco based Small and Medium sized businesses from live events, bars / restaurants, technology, cannabis, fitness, beauty, advertising, gaming, and more.
