COVID-19 Economic Recovery Task Force
Mayor London N. Breed and Board of Supervisors President Norman Yee created the COVID-19 Economic Recovery Task Force. The Task Force is co-chaired by San Francisco Assessor-Recorder Carmen Chu; San Francisco Treasurer José Cisneros; Rodney Fong, President and CEO of the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce; and Rudy Gonzalez, Executive Director of the San Francisco Labor Council.
The Task Force is charged with guiding the City’s efforts through the COVID-19 recovery to sustain and revive local businesses and employment, mitigate the economic hardships already affecting the most vulnerable San Franciscans, and build a resilient and equitable future.
Task Force Policy Areas
The Task Force will be organized around the following economic recovery policy areas:
- Jobs and Business Support: How can we ensure existing small and medium sized businesses across San Francisco survive, adapt, and thrive in a post COVID-19 environment? What do San Franciscans need to (re)enter workforce?
- Vulnerable Populations: How can we ensure our most vulnerable residents’ needs are met? How do we make it easier for a growing number of people to access and receive the support they need through the recovery?
- Economic Development: How can we make it easier to start a new business and rebuild our commercial corridors? How can we promote the growth of our city while protecting existing communities?
