I understand, from Wendy Willbanks Weisner of the Partnerships for
Affordable Cohousing (PFAC) and the Investing In Community Network (ICN),
that NCB no longer limits its loans to groups formally organized as
cooperatives. Apparently they've accepted that those of us organized using
other legal structures can also be highly cooperative.
