Santa Ana – Business Interruption Fund

The Santa Ana Business Interruption Fund (SABIF) program provides financial assistance to small “mom and pop” businesses located along the OC Streetcar transit project that are impacted by transit rail construction. SABIF is a demonstration of the City of Santa Ana’s commitment to being a trusted partner and stakeholder.
