SUPPORT H.R. 3677 (112th Congress: 2011-2012) To authorize the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development to establish a national program to create jobs and increase economic development in underserved areas by promoting cooperative development.

(Sponsor: Rep. Chaka Fattah [D-PA2)

This bill would build a foundation for a new sustainable economy of the people, by the people, and for the people. Cooperatives represent good, sound economics. “2012 has been recognised as the International Year of Co-operatives by the United Nations. This is an acknowledgement by the international community that co-operatives drive the economy, respond to social change, are resilient to the global economic crisis and are serious, successful businesses creating jobs in all sectors.” – ( )

The legislation will:

  • catalyze cooperative development efforts in low to moderate income areas, both rural and urban, throughout the United States
  • give entrepreneurs the tools to create their own economic opportunities, building wealth for themselves and their community

We need your help to mobilize support for this important legislation!

Again, please visit: for an excellent set of tools to mobilize your networks and ask your Representative to support/co-sponsor H.R. 3677.

Thank you! Cooperative Maine
