We present the result of searches for a low mass Standard Model Higgs boson produced in association with a $W$ or a $Z$ boson at a center-of-mass energy of $\sqrt{s}=$1.96~TeV with the CDF and D0 detectors at the Fermilab Tevatron collider. The search is performed in events containing one or two $b$-tagged jets in association with either two leptons, or one lepton and an imbalance in transverse energy, or simply a large imbalance in transverse energy. Datasets corresponding to up to 8.5~fb$^{-1}$ of integrated luminosity are considered in the analyses. These are the most powerful channels in the search for a low mass Higgs boson at the Tevatron. Recent sensitivity improvements will be discussed.
