The state is positioning itself to take full advantage of the billions in federal funding available under the CHIPS Act to rebuild the nation’s semiconductor industry while capitalizing on Intel’s $20 billion investment in Licking County.

Ohio political leaders have announced the creation of the Silicon Heartland Supplier Consortium in partnership with Intel, JobsOhio and the Ohio Grants Alliance, a group of business organizations that work to identify grant opportunities for Ohio organizations.

The consortium will help the state in its bid to be chosen as one of two semiconductor clusters that the federal government wants to create as part of the bill. It’s also meant to aid current and perspective Ohio suppliers to compete for grants for semiconductor materials and manufacturing equipment.

“Ohio is committed to ensuring the success of the Silicon Heartland,” Gov. Mike DeWine said in a statement. “Bringing together industry partners to onshore this critical industry is key to strengthening our national security, spurring future innovation, and making our economy more resilient.”

Soaring to new heights, together.
