$45M dedicated to advancing San Francisco workforce over next 3 years

The Office of Economic and Workforce Development (OEWD) has announced that $45 million will be provided to San Francisco in order to fund job seeking and training efforts over the next three years.

The money will be used to connect jobseekers with open positions, provide career coaching and offer skilled job training.

“This funding advances the Mayor’s goal of shared prosperity for all San Franciscans,” said Todd Rufo, Director of OEWD. “We are working closely with our community partners to deploy vital workforce services and resources in underserved communities so that we continue to guide and support individuals toward a path of self- sufficiency.”

Several City Departments are partnering with OEWD in these efforts, including San Francisco’s Human Services Agency and the Department of Children, Youth, and their Families.employmentJob huntingMayor’s Office of Economic and Workforce DevelopmentUnemployment
