Hightower Statement on CHIPS Act incentives for Intel/Central Ohio

The following is a statement from Stephanie Hightower, Columbus Urban League President & CEO, on the announcement of Federal CHIPS Act incentives for the Intel project in Central Ohio:

“Congratulations to all the political, business and nonprofit leaders who worked tirelessly to secure this amazing opportunity. Ohio can now not only grow the height and breadth of its economy, but we have a once in a lifetime chance to expand the breadth and depth of our prosperity as well. A more inclusive economy will powerfully leverage the CHIPS investment, creating high wage careers and wealth-building options for more people of color and those in underserved communities—and this, in turn, will contribute to everyone’s shared prosperity.”

From Columbus Business First: Intel’s Chips Act win is a ‘proud day for Ohio,” leaders say. Now it’s time to plan.
