NASCO Properties[edit]

NASCO Properties was established in the late 1980s to help NASCO become more directly involved in student cooperatives and permanent housing cooperatives. NASCO Properties is governed as a "co-op of co-ops", where representatives of each co-op within NP make decisions through their seats on the board on issues that relate to the entire NASCO Properties system.

Each co-op within NASCO Properties has its own mission, board, and budget, and local co-ops have complete autonomy over local policies, distribution of rents, membership criteria, and most other issues. NASCO Properties maintains financial reserves for local maintenance needs, potential vacancies, and expansion. NASCO Properties manages property taxes, insurance, major renovations, and trainings for the members of each participating co-op. [3]
