The Upstate New York region, including Rochester, Syracuse, and Buffalo, has been awarded $40 million in federal funding to support semiconductor innovation and manufacturing. The goal of the funding is to boost American-made semiconductor manufacturing and invest in the region, which has recently been recognized as a tech hub. The funding will be used for workforce training, supply chain, and commercialization, with Monroe Community College leading the workforce training aspect. This includes expanding internship and apprenticeship opportunities, creating programs to pair industry partners with semiconductor supply chain firms, and developing employer-led training initiatives at regional training and education institutions. This funding comes after the region became eligible for potential billions in federal funding for manufacturing semiconductors and more.
