CenterFuse (aka Ellensburg Business Development Authority) was established thirty years ago by the city of Ellensburg as a Public Development Authority (EBDA) whose purpose was to promote economic development in Ellensburg. The EBDA is guided by its Bylaws and Charter and operates independently of the city in a quasi-municipal manner. We have 501c6 nonprofit status with the IRS. In 2019, the EBDA was rebranded as CenterFuse. The mission of CenterFuse is to connect businesses with the resources so they can start, grow, and prosper. Today, the work of CenterFuse is guided by a 9-member board comprised of business leaders, entrepreneurs, community influencers and a representative from Central Washington University (CWU), the economic engine in Kittitas County.

CenterFuse is seeking a fulltime Executive Director to build on the organization’s track record of success by delivering top-tier economic development services to Ellensburg and our region.
