Coalition Lead Applicant: Osceola County Board of County Commissioners
Project Title: Building Central Florida’s Semiconductor Cluster for Broad-Based Prosperity
Region (applicant-defined): Central Florida
Cluster Sector(s): Advanced Manufacturing
The coalition, led by the Osceola County Board of County Commissioners, proposes to support the semiconductor cluster through the region’s existing investments in NeoCITY, a 5,000-acre technology park developed in partnership with the state of Florida in response to the effects of the Great Recession on Osceola County and the broader Orlando region. If provided an implementation grant, the coalition aims to catalyze Central Florida toward an innovation-based economy through a suite of demonstration facilities, training, education and other initiatives to propel Central Florida as a leading region for semiconductor manufacturing.
