Sometimes I get to explaining that few in the USA are legally organized as coops. And that I think that the coop form of organization would be more appropriate and the perception of funding realities that account for this. BTW I think these "realities" vary regionally. I still dream of a cohousing community organized as a coop here. Minnesota has a relatively large numbers of coops of various kinds, and we have an organization for "cooperators" -- CoMinnesota https://cominnesota.coop About 80 of the about 120 senior housing coops are in MN -- http://seniorcoops.org/housing-list-2/ But we have very few cohousing communities so far. I searched the Village Hearth website and found nothing about coops. As I understand it, not all states have a separate cooperative form of corporation. Does North Carolina? Fred -- Fred H.
