Cohousing Resources

Useful Documents shared by existing and forming communities

The purpose of this compilation is to provide a simple way for forming and existing cohousing (and other intentional) communities to find useful documents.

The Cohousing Association of the US (CohoUS) gathered these documents through many sources including the Cohousing / Intentional Community policy database (see Other Resources below) and the cooperation of many cohousing and other intentional communities. CohoUS has not attempted to vet these documents or establish a “best-practices” evaluation. We recognize that each community is unique and that the process of forming policy for your own community is an important part in developing and thriving.

Individual policies from this document are searchable on this website, or download the whole thing below.
