The project is part of Commerce's Community Economic Revitalization Board's project list. According to the CERB:

  "The Port's Committed Private Partner, Progresso Farms LLC, is investing $20 million in the project, and they expect to create and retain 72 jobs. CERB funds are matched by $1.25 million in local resources."

This is one of three projects being funded in this latest round of development, the other projects are in Snohomish and Spokane Counties.

For the last few years, Othello City officials have been working on a lot of expansion at the port, based on county growth projections.
