RFP Announcement - NYC Worker Cooperative Development Initiative

golden-steps-co-op

The Center for Family Life’s Cooperative Development Program (CDP) has been incubating worker cooperatives in Sunset Park, Brooklyn for the past eleven years. We have seen how our work has helped empower our community by supporting cooperative members in their quest for fair wages and dignified employment through their cooperative businesses. Since 2012, CDP has been helping other community based organizations develop worker cooperatives through our NYC Worker Cooperative Development Initiative. With the generous support of the New York City Council and New York Women’s Foundation, CFL will provide at least 6 months of training and technical assistance to selected “Planner” organizations to incubate worker cooperatives in their communities.

If you would like to learn more about this Initiative, please take a look at our Request for Proposal.

The deadline for submissions is Friday, May 26, 2017.

Information Sessions will take place on April 20th and April 24th.

To learn more and RSVP, please email Rachel Isreeli at risreeli@sco.org.
