Transfer of Development Rights Programs

Planning provides outreach, education, technical assistance and analysis support to local governments

Maryland InfoPortal logo

Transfer of Development Rights, or TDR, programs are a great vehicle for preserving rural land and encouraging development in existing communities while leveraging private funds. Following the administration's lead, Planning is changing Maryland for the better by serving rural communities in ways that are not a one-size-fits-all approach.

Learn more about the benefits of TDRs and services available from Planning and about county TDR programs in Maryland, including local TDR experts within local government.
