Abstract

Public policy has encouraged services to the cooperative sector due to public goods that result when members use their cooperatives. Purveyors of public services to cooperatives have been affected by several crises and changes that have lessened resource availability. The Agricultural Cooperative Service-USDA, one of the primary service providers, has potential for expanding its cooperative development services to include nonfarm organizations in addition to its traditional farm clientele. Five options are offered for closer coordination between ACS and other public sector providers of services to cooperatively owned businesses.
