$1.2M of City Council funding for worker cooperatives
"The City Council secured $1.2 million in funding to support the expansion of worker cooperatives throughout the City to help low-income and minority New Yorkers become business owners."
Thanks to all of our friends and supporters at New York City Council. In particular, we would like to thank our budget initiative's sponsors: Council Members Maria del Carmen Arroyo, Annabel Palma, and Helen Rosenthal.
