The National Cooperative Bank and Capital Impact Partners are excited to partner again this year on the 2021 Co-op Innovation Award.
The application will be released in April and will be available in English and Spanish.
The award was launched in 2015 to encourage cooperative growth and development in historically disinvested communities and/or communities of color. Catalytic seed funding and technical assistance are provided to early-stage, innovative projects that have the potential for replication.
In 2020, three cooperative organizations were chosen to receive the Co-op Innovation Award- – ChiFresh, The Guild, and the Bronx Cooperative Development Initiative – received a total of $100,000. Read more on the 2020 innovation award.
This year, we are also seeking organizations interested in sponsorship opportunities to expand the awards to more deserving recipients.
