我的預算還維持了對街頭危機響應團隊（SCRT）、街頭健康響應團隊（SWRT）和街頭藥物響應團隊（SORT）的撥款， 並為911 接線生和危機顧問提供更多撥款資金，以在911應變中心服務，幫助那些與行為健康緊急情況作鬥爭的人。
我們還需要繼續工作，以保持市內清潔。 公務員，非營利員工和其他人每天都在外面清理我們的街道。 我的預算以這項工作為基礎，增加了增強的田德隆區清潔計劃，這將擴大公務局目前在該區的清潔事務。
Strengthening safety and recovery
By Mayor London Breed
My fellow San Franciscans,
This week I introduced my balanced two-year budget proposal that focuses on strengthening economic recovery and public safety, restoring public services, supporting workers and families, and building on efforts to reduce homelessness and address behavioral health.
We have a lot of work to do to bring this City back from a long two years, but I’m confident this budget is focused on serving the people of San Francisco.
Strengthening Economic Recovery
My budget invests nearly $50 million over the next two years to support small businesses and strengthen our economic recovery. This includes:
Continuing ambassador programs in existing locations like Mid-Market, Union Square, Downtown, South of Market and along the Embarcadero.
Creating new programming that targets small businesses and the City’s Economic Core.
Grants and loans aimed to help small businesses stabilize, scale up, and adapt business models to changing conditions.
We will continue to work on long-term planning for the future of Downtown and our Economic Core, but the small businesses in those areas need relief right now.
My budget also addresses our public safety staffing, both in traditional public safety departments, such as the Fire, Police and Sheriff departments, as well as in alternative law enforcement safety programs through other City departments.
This includes funding a Police Hiring Plan to fill the 200 vacant budgeted police positions through additional academy classes, increasing base starting salaries to strengthen recruitment, and offering retention bonuses to keep officers in the Department. We have to address understaffing if we want more police officers walking the beat in our neighborhoods, responding to 911 calls, and stopping the break-ins, drug dealing, and other crimes impacting our residents and small businesses.
My budget also maintains investments for the Street Crisis Response Teams (SCRT), Street Wellness Response Teams (SWRT), and Street Opioid Response Team (SORT), and adds more funding for 911 dispatchers and Crisis Counselors to serve in the 911 call center to help us help those struggling with behavioral health emergencies.
Children and Families
This year I launched a Children and Family Recovery Plan, a long-term plan that includes a $50 million dollar investment to focus on wellness, access to childcare, and overall family support.
My budget also continues a landmark program to raise early educator pay at City-funded childcare centers to a minimum of $28 dollars an hour so we can attract and retain quality educators to better support our children.
We also need to continue to do the work to keep our City clean. Every day city workers, non-profit workers, and others are out there cleaning up our streets. My budget builds on this work by adding an enhanced Tenderloin cleaning initiative, which will expand Public Works’ current cleaning operations in the area.
We are also funding a new effort to support enforcement of the new law just passed that deals with illegal street vending. Illegal street vending is bad for local businesses, harms our neighborhoods, and contributes to retail theft.
What’s Next for the Budget
Now that the Budget has been introduced, it goes to the Board of Supervisors. The Board will spend the next month holding hearings on the budget, and it’s important that members hear from their constituents about the above priorities if you feel they are important.
