ANNOUNCEMENT: NYC Worker Cooperative Development Initiative

The Center for Family Life (CFL) has been incubating worker cooperatives in Sunset Park, Brooklyn for the past eight 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. In the last 3 years we have been helping other community based organizations develop worker cooperatives through our NYC Worker Cooperative Development Initiative. With the generous support of the New York Women’s Foundation, CFL will provide 6 months of training and technical assistance to selected organizations planning 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 15, 2015.
