About the San Francisco District Office

About Our Office: 

The San Francisco District Office (SFDO) of the SBA helps Northern Californians start, build and grow businesses. SFDO serves fourteen counties in Northern California, from Santa Cruz County to the Oregon border. Counties served include: Alameda, Contra Costa, Del Norte, Humboldt, Lake, Marin, Mendocino, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Solano, and Sonoma.

SFDO is located in downtown San Francisco in the heart of the financial district at 455 Market Street, Suite 600. The San Francisco chapter of SCORE is conveniently located in the same suite, where more than 50 retired and active professionals provide free and confidential business counseling and a variety of low-cost workshops to boost your business success.

In Fiscal Year 2012, the District guaranteed over 1,500 small business loans valued at $807 million. 125 banks, credit unions and community lenders participated in this program.

Annually, the San Francisco District Office cohosts over 1,000 training events for over 50,000 Bay Area small businesses or prospective businesses from SBA resource partners.

SFDO aids, counsels, and assists local small businesses to maintain and strengthen our community.
