Free PPE Available

PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE) FROM THE CITY

San Francisco has secured a large shipment of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) from the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (CalOES) and the California Office of the Small Business Advocate (CalOSBA) to support small businesses. The shipment includes hand sanitizers, surgical masks, and face shields. Our goal in providing this PPE to businesses is to save them the time and expense of procuring PPE, and to help focus and prepare them for continued safe reopening.

In collaboration with Community-Based Organizations (CBOs), a one-month supply of PPE will be distributed to local businesses that are open and/or will reopen soon, while supplies last.


To support the City’s equity goals, OEWD developed an equitable distribution plan for the PPE based on the following priorities:

Business located in designated Opportunity Neighborhoods

Low-Income Businesses and those with barriers to access PPE

Micro-Businesses with high volumes of visitors and clients

Micro-Businesses with high touch interactions with the public

 

ORGANIZATIONS & NEIGHBORHOODS

Beginning on Monday, August 31 and continuing over the next two weeks, the City’s CBOs partners will be picking up their shipments of PPE. San Francisco small businesses that would like to request PPE can do so through their nearest participating community-based organization. They may request a 30-day supply of hand sanitizers, surgical masks, and face shields. Organizations that have received their shipment have contact info listed below. For those where contact info is not yet listed, please check back. For questions, call our Office of Small Business Division at 415-554-6134.
