Grants generally averaging up to $20,000 to cooperatives or cooperative-related organizations that propose projects supporting the growth and development of cooperative solutions for seniors in rural communities, with a preference for proposals that are about integrating cooperative home care into rural housing developments.
Scholarships (between $500 and $1,000) are also available for individuals to fund training in cooperative education. The purpose of these grants is to support the growth and development of cooperative enterprises and organizations, with a particular focus in the agribusiness arena.
There is an emphasis on proposals which have the potential to:
a. Increase public understanding of the cooperative model and the role cooperatives play in the economy.
b. Produce new information about emerging issues and opportunities in the cooperative community, through research and analysis, as well as pilot projects.
c. Facilitate the education of current and future cooperative leaders.

Within this framework, preference is given to grant applications and proposals outlining:
a. Projects (or scholarships) directed towards cooperative education, cooperative training or cooperative marketing/promotion.
b. Development or “leading edge” projects where seed money is needed to establish credentials for alternative future funding. Please note: grants are not awarded to fund salaries, general operating expenses or capital improvements.
