COVID-19 Co-op Emergency Fund & Resources

The Cooperative Fund of New England is making available a $1M Emergency Cooperative Enterprise Relief Loan Fund for cooperatives in New England and parts of New York State who are seeing a dramatic loss of customers and revenue as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are also offering a 60-day suspension of payments to our borrowers that are at highest risk and greatest need. If your co-op is struggling as a result of the pandemic, please reach out to us.
