Orlando is home to Magic & microchips

Neocity is the region’s 500 acre epicenter of semiconductor manufacturing reshoring.

Osceola County Wins the Build Back Better Regional Challenge

The funding received from the U.S. Economic Development Administration’s Build Back Better Regional Challenge will have compounding ripple effects throughout the economy and positions the region to lead the nation in semiconductor reshoring.

  • The decision by the EDA to invest in Osceola County’s vision for semiconductor manufacturing at NeoCity is a landmark moment for the Orlando Region.
  • Among the first-ever major federal investment in the reshoring of U.S. semiconductor manufacturing, the Orlando region has emerged as a national leader in innovation and advanced manufacturing.
  • As the Partnership continues to advocate for semiconductor manufacturing funding, through opportunities like Congress’s CHIPS Act, the Orlando region is now at the center of federal leaders’ strategy to invest boldly in the shoring up of our nation’s supply chains and the upgrading lagging infrastructure.
Together, we are catalyzing inclusive growth through semiconductor manufacturing, another example of why Orlando is Unbelievably Real.
