At the end of the 2-5 yr Contract, Farmers have the oportunity to be reimbursed for the amount of their initial start-up investment as a Severance Pension for their developments, depending on successful completion of the Contract Goals.  Regeneration Nation will do everything possible to work with Sponsored Businesses, but in the case that the Contract ends prematurely or was not satisfactorily fulfilled, the Severance Fund will be used to Contract a new Farmer for development of the space.

All Sponsorship Partners will receive Business Support throughout the Contract and periodic reviews to help keep projects on track and facilitate the Individual Business goals.

In return for Sponsorships, Recipients agree to contribute to Community Life by providing periodic Workshops, Classes or Farm Tours at reasonable prices, which allow their Sponsors and local Community to participate and learn from Sponsored Developments as well as creating additional income for Farmers.
