The Invest in Neighborhoods Initiative, one of the 17 points of Mayor Lee’s plan for jobs and economic opportunity, provides focused, customized assistance to meet the specific needs of San Francisco’s neighborhood commercial corridors. Invest in Neighborhoods aims to strengthen and revitalize neighborhood commercial districts around the City by marshaling and deploying resources from across multiple departments and nonprofit partners. These include economic development services such as loan programs, facade improvement grants, and technical assistance for small businesses. Invest in Neighborhoods is also leveraging other City services – from the Planning Department, Department of Public Works, Municipal Transportation Agency, and other departments – that help small businesses thrive, increase quality of life, improve physical conditions, and build community capacity. Every neighborhood commercial district has its own unique needs, opportunities and challenges. Invest in Neighborhoods aims to deploy the specific services and resources that are most needed in each district.
