There are currently six companies participating in the Community Benefit Agreement process, with each innovative business working closely with community leaders and organizations to effectively leverage their respective time, talents, and resources to help create a better neighborhood for everyone. These community partnerships have formed in creative and impactful ways. Below are some examples of ways that the CBAs are being implemented around Central Market Street and the Tenderloin, as well as links to the CBA agreements and progress reports.
