Coop Evaluation Reports
power of coops action
Cooperatives can diversify and strengthen their local economic communities because of their local ownership, control, and operations.

A NONPROFIT CAPACITY SELF-ASSESSMENT WORKBOOK
Organizational assessment, however, is often an activity that grassroots groups do not have the time or resources to do. The difficulties of assessing capacity and performance are compounded for rural low-income housing development groups that are often struggling with the daily demands of their work in an environment with little informational resources or organizational support. With this in mind, HAC has developed a workbook for assessing the housing development capacity and “track record” of rural nonprofit organizations. The workbook provides organizations with simple definitions of capacity in different contexts, and includes both quantitative and qualitative ways of measuring capacity.
