NEW: MIAMI-DADE DESIGNATED AS A REGIONAL TECH HUB THANKS TO BIDEN-HARRIS ADMINISTRATION
WASHINGTON, D.C. — On Monday, the Biden-Harris Administration announced that Florida — along with 31 other sites nationally — will become a national Innovation and Technology Hub through the Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration. The South Florida Climate Resilience Tech Hub, led by the Miami-Dade County Innovation and Economic Development Office, will create jobs in Florida and help advance America’s global leadership in Sustainable and Resilient Infrastructure (SRI) solutions to address climate change.
“There’s no doubt about it: President Biden is doubling down on his commitment to Florida’s workers and the Florida economy with the Biden Administration’s tech hub in Miami-Dade,” said Mayra Macías, Executive Director of Building Back Together and former Florida Democratic Party Political Director. “The South Florida Climate Resilience Tech Hub is a major investment in the technology and infrastructure we need to grow our economy for decades to come and to combat climate change.”
