Community Economic Revitalization Board (CERB)
The Community Economic Revitalization Board (CERB) was formed in 1982 to respond to local economic development in Washington communities. CERB provides funding to local governments and federally-recognized tribes for public infrastructure which supports private business growth and expansion. Eligible projects include domestic and industrial water, storm water, wastewater, public buildings, telecommunications, and port facilities.
INVESTING IN WASHINGTON'S ECONOMIC FUTURE
CERB has invested $163 million in communities across the state. These projects encouraged private and local investments adding up to about $34 for every $1 from CERB. They created over 35,000 permanent jobs and generated $385 million in other public funds and $5.6 billion in private investment.
