NY CREATES Pres. Dave Anderson’s Statement on Micron’s CHIPS Act Announcement

“NY CREATES applauds today’s announcement regarding our partner, Micron, receiving $6.1 billion in CHIPS Act grants to support new fabs, including those to be built in New York State. With such announcements, what we are seeing is a landmark moment in the advancement of semiconductor manufacturing, R&D and innovation-focused workforce development in the U.S. Micron’s expansion in New York is made possible by Governor Hochul’s leadership establishing the region as a semiconductor hub, and by Senate Majority Leader Schumer’s trailblazing U.S. CHIPS Act, which is strategically investing in America’s high-tech future. President Biden’s visit to the site of Micron’s future fabs underscores the significance of this transformative project, and we simultaneously look forward to Micron’s collaboration and involvement with NY CREATES’ recently announced High NA EUV Center. This fast-growing ecosystem is propelling the U.S. into a new technological era and driving economic prosperity.”
