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.
CERB’s Rural Broadband Program is up and running! For more information on what it is, and how to apply for funding, see our Rural Broadband page, here.
