Mayor’s Office of Economic and Workforce Development (MOEWD):
The Mayor's Office of Economic & Workforce Development (MOEWD) is dedicated to enhancing
San Francisco's economic vitality and to expanding the City's tax and employment base. The
Department oversees activities and programs related to Development Planning, Business Attraction
and Retention, and Neighborhood Commercial Revitalization.
The City of San Francisco's strong economy, diverse population, great educational institutions,
unsurpassed quality of life, and world-renowned location make it the ideal place to do business, to
work, and to live. MOEWD is committed to improving San Francisco's infrastructure, creating jobs
and housing, and investing in our workforce, our neighborhoods, and our small businesses.
MOEWD is comprised of three primary divisions – business attraction and retention, neighborhood
commercial revitalization, and development planning.
1. Business Attraction and Retention
The Mayor's Office of Economic Development administers programs that enhance our business
climate and assist San Franciscans, business owners and job seekers alike. The business attraction
and retention division assists companies seeking to expand their international commercial
opportunities, assist with their hiring and employment needs, and provide them with information
on access to capital and other important incentives. Through its GIS-based website
(http://www.sfgov.org/site/sfprospector_index.asp), MOEWD also helps businesses locate
available and appropriate commercial space.
2. Neighborhood Commercial Revitalization
