The Community Economic Revitalization Board (CERB) provides funding to local governments and federally-recognized tribes for public infrastructure which supports private business growth and expansion. Funding for this important program was not included in the Governor’s budget proposal. Please call your state representatives and urge them to fund CERB for the 2018-19 biennium.
Eligible projects include domestic and industrial water, storm water, wastewater, public buildings, telecommunications, and port facilities.
