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.
