Proffer Compliance

man with compliance paperMonetary proffers and contributions are often approved as part of the rezoning process. Private developers and individual property owners voluntarily “proffer” funds with conditions and time triggers that qualify how and when they will be used, often to mitigate the impacts of their proposal. The Proffer Coordination Team collects monetary proffers and transfers the money to Fairfax County agencies to use to fund county projects such as: schools, parks, public transportation and housing.

A Monetary Proffer contribution is a cash payment required because of an approved Rezoning Case (RZ) or Proffer Condition Amendment (PCA).

Monetary contributions required by a Special Exception (SE), Special Exception Amendment (SEA), Special Permit (SP), Special Permit Amendment (SPA), Final Development Plan (FDP) and Final Development Plan Amendment (FDPA) are considered development conditions, not proffers, but are also collected by FAC.

Some Proffer and Development Conditions are subject to cost escalation based on the Consumer Price Index (CPI). The escalation clause is specified within the specific Proffer or Development Condition language, or it can be specified as a separate Proffer or Development Condition within the same approved zoning action. If a Proffer or Development Condition is subject to escalation, the contribution amount must be recalculated prior to payment.

Submission Processes

  • If the plan or project requires a Proffer Tracking Smartsheet, please submit the Proffer Matrix via email. If you have questions regarding the Proffer Matrix submission process please visit Frequently Asked Questions: Proffer Matrix or email us.

  • If you need to have a monetary proffer, Green Building Escrow or Tree Preservation Escrow calculated, please complete the Monetary Proffer Calculation Form to initiate the Proffer calculation process. You may use the same form for up to three proffers. In the comments section please indicate which proffer(s) you would like calculated.

The Proffer Coordination Team will assign a Green Building Verifier to review the certification and the Environmental and Development Review Branch (EDRB) will approve or disapprove the submission.
