San Francisco workers are hurting due to COVID-19. That’s why on June 2, the City and County of San Francisco authorized a one-time cash payment of up to $500 to help you and your family with COVID-19 expenses.

Am I eligible for the $500 cash payment?
If you have at least $100 in your SF Medical Reimbursement Account (SF MRA) as of June 2, 2020, and have at least $500 in COVID-19 related expenses not otherwise compensated for by insurance or otherwise, you are eligible for a one-time $500 grant.

Does the $500 come from my SF MRA?
This $500 does not come out of your SF MRA. Your SF MRA is still there to pay for health care expenses.

Next Steps

  • If you are potentially eligible for the $500, you will receive an email or letter from Dr. Colfax and the Department of Public Health by the end of September 2020.
  • The email or letter will tell you how to submit a Grant Payment Form to get the $500.
  • On the Form, you certify that you will use the $500 for COVID-19 related costs – including rent, food, and other living expenses.
  • Your payment will be sent 3 weeks after you submit the Form.
  • If you believe that you are eligible and have not received an email or letter by the end of September 2020, call SF City Option Customer Service at (877) 772-0415.
