Fair Chance Ordinance

The Fair Chance Ordinance provides people with prior arrest and conviction records the opportunity to be considered for employment and housing on an individual basis, thereby affording them with a fair chance to acquire employment and housing, to effectively reintegrate into the community, and to provide for their families and themselves.

The Fair Chance Ordinance (FCO) imposes restrictions on criminal history inquiries on certain employers and affordable housing providers such as CHP. The FCO’s requirements for employers and affordable housing providers are codified in Article 49 of the San Francisco Police Code.
