How Do I Apply?

Applying to a co-op…

First, you must decide which co-op(s) you wish to apply to because each co-op has its own application. Contact the co-op to find out how to apply. Many co-ops hold regular information meetings where you will find out more about that co-op, can ask questions, and can pick up an application. You may be placed on a waiting list if no units are available at the time you apply.

The co-op will consider your application based on criteria that will always include: agreeing to take good care of your home, a willingness to live in a diverse community, and most important: demonstrated financial responsibility. The co-op will always check references as part of your application.

After you have completed an application, you may be invited to an interview where you will be asked some questions. You will also have explained to you your rights and responsibilities of living in your co-op.
