Project Moon, the code name used by the nonprofit, could receive up to $684,000 in incentives over five years from the state’s Strategic Fund if it creates 171 new jobs paying an average annual wage of $52,874 a year.

When the plant is up and running, it should produce 1,000 modular homes and apartment units a year.
