  • Create/modify co-op education and training materials using an indigenous lens
  • Conduct pre-feasibility research and support development of a steering committee for child care co-ops in Native communities
  • Conduct a feasibility study for a Native art buying and marketing co-op
  • Assist with other cooperative opportunities that arise during the grant period.
  • Support tribal economic and community development professionals about cooperative business options.
