  • The provision of a financial guarantee with respect to any loan secured using development potential as collateral;
  • The provision of planning assistance grants to municipalities to help cover the cost of preparing the planning documents required to enact viable TDR ordinances;
  • Service as a development transfer bank for any municipality that has adopted a development transfer ordinance, or any county in which at least one municipality has adopted a development transfer ordinance; and
  • The establishment and maintenance of a Development Potential Transfer Registry to record all development potential transfers.
