The Union of Czech and Moravian Co-operative Housing (SCMBD) is carrying out its activities throughout the Czech Republic. Its member organizations are 635 housing cooperatives, representing about 20% of the total housing property of the country.
Its mission is to protect the interests of the cooperative housing movement as a whole and to provide housing cooperatives with methodical counseling as well as to evaluate their concrete problems that cannot be solved successfully by an individual cooperative or a regional association.
Furthermore, SCMBD represents its member cooperatives in negotiations with the government, parliament, and various governmental and non-governmental organizations. It is a member of international cooperative organizations and maintains contacts with similar international institutions.
