This is one of those tasks that isn’t high enough priority for Coho-US to 
assign resources to but is very important to the development of cohousing. We 
need some one like Fred who started the Cohousing-L list to recognize that a 
contact list kept updated would fill an essential need and then take it upon 
themselves to do it.

I still remember the people who were grateful as well in the 1990s to the 
person who made a spreadsheet of all the banks that had financed a cohousing 
community. It wasn’t a long list by any means but it included major banks, and 
that helped others get financing.
