FY24−25 Priority Goals

Ensure all Americans have access to high-speed, affordable, and reliable broadband

By September 30, 2025, the Departments of Agriculture and Commerce will expand affordable and reliable access to broadband service by funding projects, which when completed, will provide at least 6,250,000 households and other locations with reliable and affordable access to high-quality internet service. This will be achieved through investment in broadband infrastructure and related activities, accompanied by outreach and technical assistance, and in coordination with applicable Federal agencies, to promote American household accessibility to affordable, reliable, high-speed internet service.

Joint Goal with the Department of Agriculture

Advance U.S. Semiconductor Manufacturing

By September 30, 2025, the Department of Commerce will advance U.S. national security and economic competitiveness by building domestic semiconductor manufacturing capacity through investing in the development of a range of semiconductor facilities and upstream suppliers, including at least two clusters dedicated to the fabrication of leading-edge logic chips; and by investing in research and development programs focused on supporting research in semiconductor technology, metrology, advanced packaging, and manufacturing.

Protect U.S. Critical and Emerging Technology

By September 30, 2025, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) will enhance its efforts to protect U.S. critical and emerging technologies by: 1) conducting outreach to a minimum of 2,500 domestic and foreign companies, foreign governments, and other parties to increase awareness of and thus compliance with export controls; and 2) enhancing the effectiveness of our controls by increasing the number of enforcement outcomes by 15% and increasing the number of end-use checks, which are a critical tool to prevent the transshipment and diversion of U.S. items, by 25%.

Advance Toward Climate Ready Coasts

By September 30, 2025, NOAA will improve climate resilience in coastal communities by completing 100% of programmatic milestones: to improve fish passage for threatened and endangered species; support coastal habitat restoration priorities of tribes and underserved communities, remove marine debris; and protect and conserve coastal and Great Lakes habitats.

Accelerate place-based and innovation-driven economic development

By September 30, 2025, Economic Development Administration (EDA) will equitably and inclusively accelerate high-growth industry clusters that are critical for U.S. global competitiveness. This will be achieved by supporting economic transformation of 21 U.S. regions awarded through the Build Back Better Regional Challenge and by designating at least 20 regional technology hubs (Tech Hubs).
