Funding must be used for planning, research, other plan implementation activities associated with land use planning, zoning law revision, GIS planning, comprehensive and master plan updates, or the codification of laws.

Funding in general is limited to the following:

-Planning funds to prepare or upgrade a zoning ordinance or other relevant law, plan, or ordinance (i.e. floodplain, wetland, comprehensive plan, subdivision).
-Funding to publish such an ordinance.
-Funding to address a problem identified in the Plan for resolution.
-The preparation of educational materials and guides that assist in implementation of the Plan.
