Role of SMRPC?
n SMRPC could administer a regional grant or
revolving loan fund for projects to mitigate
impacts from the casino, unforeseen during
the approval process.  Other states have set
up such a mechanism funded by a
percentage of casino revenues.
n This structure could be in the form of a
foundation, development district, regional
authority, or any other entity supported by an
interlocal agreement.
