The Biden Administration last week announced the designation of the tech hubs throughout the United states -- chosen from a list of 370 applicants. The tech hubs, located across 32 states and Puerto Rico, will be eligible to apply for $40 million to $75 million in federal funding. Biden has asked Congress for $4 billion in additional funding for the tech hub program.
