New England Resident Owned Communities (NEROC)
As part of our long-term strategic vision for affordable housing development in the Northeast, CDI is committed to assisting residents of manufactured homes in New England gain ownership over their communities through our New England Resident Owned Communities (NEROC) program.
Business Ownership Solutions (BOS)
For business owners and employees alike, co-op conversion is one of the best ways to form a cooperative. Our BOS program works with business owners to think through whether conversion to a cooperative could meet their needs, and with employees or community members to execute the co-op conversion.
Cooperative Food Systems
It takes cooperatives to build a thriving regional food system built to last. From producers to consumers, distributors to food service workers, and retailers to institutions, CDI can help identify the ways people can work together to create values-based businesses structured to succeed.
We provide direct technical assistance for co-ops of all kinds and at all stages of development. Through communication, training, and facilitation, CDI can help bring the resources and energy together to produce creative, lasting responses to our real human needs through cooperatives.
