Community groups are encouraged to apply for part of $2.8 million to provide San Francisco residents with business, workforce and neighborhood services, city officials said.
The money is being made available through The City’s Office of Economic and Workforce Development, which has announced a request for proposals to provide the services.
Proposals are due Feb. 26.
Nearly $1.6 million is available for projects that strengthen small businesses, improve physical conditions, increase the quality of life and build community capacity.
The money is being made available through the Invest in Neighborhoods Initiative, which aims to contribute to neighborhood stability and vitality.
Up to $800,000 is being offered to strengthen the music industry and manufacturing, including work to explore the potential for a modular housing production facility in San Francisco.
The $800,000 is also aimed at supporting job creation through initiatives involving international development.
Officials with the Office of Economic and Workforce Development are making $400,000 available to provide education, training and employment services to the hospitality and technology industries.
