Madison Cooperative Development Coalition

The Madison Cooperative Development Coalition (MCDC) is the City of Madison-funded initiative to form worker cooperatives that address income inequality and racial disparities by creating living-wage union jobs. It is a collaborative of community-based organizations and cooperative developers. MCDC works to specifically address factors affecting local communities of color, low wealth, and traditionally excluded workforces. The goal is to create a sustainable system that will combat poverty, empower workers and increase equity in order to strengthen Madison’s long-term economic health.

MCDC provides support and resources — including grants — to people that want to start a co-op and organizations that want to work co-op development and education into their programming.
