A co-working nonprofit organization in downtown Shreveport has received a $50,000 grant to help it relocate and become a permanent option for small business owners who wish to work in a shared space. CoHabitat Foundation executive director John Grindley said his lease is up in March 2013. He’s working to close a deal with the city to move CoHab and its 50 member businesses into a defunct restaurant in the Red River District.
“We need to work somewhere downtown that doesn’t force us to raise our member rates,” Grindley said. “We’re looking for a permanent home now.”
