Catalyzing worker co-ops & the solidarity economy

USDA Grant Advances Homecare Cooperative Development

Thanks to a Rural Cooperative Development Grant from USDA, CDF will continue coordinating the  Homecare Cooperative Initiative and its work developing homecare cooperatives. 

The 2019-20 USDA grant means CDF will:

  • Host the 2019 National Homecare Cooperative Conference, 

  • Identify existing homecare agencies suitable for conversion to worker ownership, 

  • Conduct a feasibility study for a secondary cooperative to support homecare cooperatives,  

  • Implement a homecare loan fund, 

  • Support a homecare cooperative benchmarking study, and

  • Provide education, outreach and steering committee activities.
