Mission-Driven Developer 2024 Cohort

Module selects eight housing providers across five states for its Mission-Driven Developer Program. The selected housing providers are pursuing innovative approaches to increasing housing supply and are dedicated to creating new affordable, mixed-income, and workforce housing in historically disinvested communities.

Module will offer discounted design services and technical assistance. Developers will have access to office hours with experienced mentors and free access to Module's design, construction, and development playbooks. Additionally, developers in the program will receive priority on Module’s manufacturing line, significantly reducing cycle times for projects that deliver affordable housing where they are needed most.
