About This Event
CERF aims to help diversify local economies and develop sustainable industries that create high-quality, broadly accessible jobs. The State of California is allocating $600 million across 13 designated regions to fund the development of economic development strategies that support the creation of quality jobs and equal access to those jobs.
Join us to learn more about the CERF process and how it is being implemented locally.
