Mitigation Banking and Stewardship

GTA serves as the Bank Sponsor for the first federal agency Umbrella Mitigation Banking Instrument in Maryland, completed for the United States Air Force. We provide expertise in mitigation design, permitting, and construction supervision. We also hold mitigation sites and easements, managing them as the long-term steward. We have experience in setting up and working with long-term stewardship, endowment, and catastrophic event funds that support high quality stewardship or preserved lands, including completed mitigation banks and sites.
