German to English translations [PRO]
Bus/Financial - Real Estate / cooperative housing history
German term or phrase: Förderwirtschaft
Sentence: Denn der Zusammenschluß zu einer Genossenschaft, einer „Förderwirtschaft der Mitglieder“, wie es so richtig heißt, dient zunächst der Erzielung von Kostenvorteilen durch Zusammenschluß (economies of scale).

The text is about housing co-ops, or rather, cooperative housing estates with single family homes. Is there a good translation for Förderwirtschaft? I know that it is essentially a business formed to benefit a group of members, and Genossenschaft is translated as a cooperative; what is a good term to use for Förderwirtschaft? Thank you.
