Students in UW-Madison’s Agriculture and Applied Economics 323 studied different cooperative models across the country to spur ideas in Dane County about how this particular business model could address the concerns of access to affordable housing, child care, and food. The report is broken up into three sections: (1) affordable housing cooperatives, (2) child care cooperatives, and (3) food cooperatives. In each section, we offer case study examples of how communities across the United States are using these models to address these particular social concerns.
