Learn more about the Westchester Cooperative Network. This network promotes and supports the development of worker-owned cooperatives in Westchester County. Check their website. And listen to the interview (link below) with Delia Marx, Co-founder of WCN. Worker-owned coops exist around the nation but not in Westchester. Delia would love to start a coop in Greenburgh and the county. The cooperative network currently offers a limited number of grants of up to $10,000 to groups whose business mission aligns with the seven cooperative principles. WCN accepts applications on a rolling basis.
