Being a good neighbor means investing in our local workforce and our local businesses. SFPUC provides individuals and small businesses with valuable tools, training and economic opportunities. These investments support a strong, inclusive, local economy and a skilled, diverse, local workforce for today and tomorrow.

Access to Business Opportunities
We are committed to supporting local small businesses that present new employment opportunities and serve as the building blocks to creating a vibrant community. Through our Contractors Assistance Center, we provide local community contractors and small businesses with the tools and resources needed to compete for City-funded contracts. Located in the Bayview Hunters Point, the Center offers a wide range of services from classroom-style workshops and one-on-one counseling to networking events.
