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 Financial Justice Project

The San Francisco Office of the Treasurer & Tax Collector is the first in the nation to launch a Financial Justice Project to assess and reform how fines and fees impact our city’s most vulnerable residents. The Financial Justice Project examines questions such as: What policy objectives are these financial penalties advancing? Are they serving San Francisco residents, the community and the city at large? Are there better ways to achieve our goals?
