We offer direct services, free of cost, for operating and start-up cooperatives. Our yearly Principle 6 Direct Service Program, is one of the ways NYC Worker Cooperatives benefit directly from the city-funded initiative by receiving technical assistance and direct services provided by other worker cooperatives. By hiring worker cooperatives to provide essential services to other cooperatives, NYC NOWC hopes to foster “Cooperation among Cooperatives” as stated by Principle 6 of the International Cooperative Principles.

Through this program, worker co-ops are eligible to receive up to $500 to go toward direct services such as:

  • Screenprinting Merchandise (such as t-shirts & totes),
  • Web Support & Web Hosting
  • Printing (such as business cards, brochures, flyers, etc)
  • Bookkeeping
  • Tutorials.

In order to make sure the greatest amount of Coop’s benefit, we ask your coop to select only the service you most need at this time.


Applications are currently closed. Pleased stay tuned for applications to reopen late summer/ early Fall.
