Office of Financial Empowerment
The San Francisco Office of Financial Empowerment was created to equip poor and low-income San Franciscans with the knowledge, skills and access they need to achieve greater financial security. Empowered people create and expand businesses, raise healthy families, support their community, and contribute to the tax base so critical to a sustainable city.
The Office has launched several first-of-their-kind programs to help San Franciscans gain critical access to quality financial education and counseling, affordable financial services, savings for college, electronic pay solutions, and more. The Office leverages this pioneering work to model municipal government as a laboratory for social innovation and demonstrate what’s possible for other cities across the country.
