Community Economic Resilience Fund

What is the Community Economic Resilience Fund?

The Community Economic Resilience Fund (CERF) was created to promote a sustainable and equitable recovery from the economic distress of COVID-19 by supporting new plans and strategies to diversify local economies and develop sustainable industries that create high-quality, broadly accessible jobs for all Californians.

To achieve this goal, the State will allocate $600 million across thirteen designated regions to fund the development
of region-specific economic development strategies that support the creation of quality jobs and equal access to
those jobs. For more information about the CERF program, please read the CERF LA HRTC Fact Sheet.

We are excited to announce that the Los Angeles coalition of over 200 organizations and stakeholders was awarded Phase 1 Funds for CERF process.
