COVID-19 Response — Stepping Up to Help Small Businesses

Our Immediate Response

  • The Port, Airport, and Public Utilities Commission also implemented rent deferral and forgiveness programs for small and local business tenants, and the PUC offered discounts on utility bills to non-residential customers with less than 50 employees.

Our Continued Investments During COVID-19

  • We also recently extended the Unified License Fee deferral to October 2021, which will give approximately 19,000 businesses additional time to pay roughly $16 million in fees. No interest payments, fees, or fines will accrue as a result of the deferral.
  • These funds can still be used for businesses to be reimbursed for costs associated with their Shared Space or other storefront improvements they need to make.
