Community Economic Revitalization Board (CERB)

The Community Economic Revitalization Board (CERB) was created in 1982 to respond to local economic development in Washington communities.  The CERB's flexible, rapid response to emerging growth opportunities has generated more than 34,000 permanent jobs for Washingtonians.
CERB provides funding to local governments and federally recognized tribes for public infrastructure which support private business growth and expansion.  Eligible projects for CERB funding include domestic and industrial water, storm water, wastewater,  public buildings, telecommunications and port facilities among others.

NEW! Online Application for Committed Private Partner Construction Program

Our clients asked for a simpler application and we listened! We’ve broken this application into two phases, with Tier 1 as a simple online application consisting of basic threshold questions.
Clients will know within 3 days of online submittal whether their project meets CERB’s minimum requirements. If the project passes the first Tier, staff will send you a shortened paper application with supplemental questions for the Tier 2.
For a step-by-step look at the new process, please watch this webinar (turn on speakers for sound).
