CHIPS Incentives Program – Facilities for Semiconductor Materials and Manufacturing
National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), United States Department of Commerce
On September 29, 2023, CHIPS for America released its second funding opportunity to strengthen the resilience of the semiconductor supply chain, advance U.S. technology leadership, and support vibrant domestic semiconductor clusters. This funding opportunity seeks applications for projects for the construction, expansion, or modernization of commercial facilities for semiconductor materials and manufacturing equipment with capital investments less than $300 million.
Through this funding opportunity, the Department is particularly interested in applications that advance clusters by closing critical gaps in the U.S. supplier landscape. If a project does not support a cluster, the application must make a compelling case for advancing one of the Department’s other two objectives.
An applicant must be a “covered entity” to receive CHIPS Incentives. For purposes of this
NOFO, a “covered entity” means a nonprofit entity; a private-sector entity; a consortium of
private-sector entities; or a consortium of nonprofit, public, and private-sector entities with a
demonstrated ability to substantially finance, construct, expand, or modernize a facility relating to the fabrication, assembly, testing, advanced packaging, production, or research and
development of semiconductors, materials used to manufacture semiconductors or
semiconductor manufacturing equipment.
