In April 2023, Training Grounds joined The Last Mile Network in partnership with Module and Enterprise Community Partners. The Last Mile Network is a collection of off-site construction facilities in urban communities in the Midwest & Mid-Atlantic. Many modular factories are located in rural environments. These locally-owned facilities provide jobs to urban communities and provide the opportunity to develop a “modular ecosystem” in each market.
Each facility is designed to produce an all-electric, solar-ready, affordable housing product line while bringing good-paying jobs and workforce training opportunities to urban communities. In addition to creating jobs, these facilities will provide entrepreneurs and developers with the opportunity to build wealth.
With the support of Fannie Mae, Module is teaming up with Enterprise Community Partners to scale the idea regionally. The goal is to open up to four other Last Mile Facilities, starting with Prince George’s County, Maryland, and Richmond, Virginia.
Training Grounds is honored to help organize outreach and workforce development initiatives for this network. For more information on the Last Mile Network or to become a Last MIle Delivery Partner Contact Us
