He's having Hardison setting up total clean slate ID's. Legal, safe, and as straight as a marines dress uniform. After all the crap with Dubenich and such he wants to have the team an OUT of their live. He's doing it in secret as they'd never go for it without incentive, and when the Big Bad
of the season will make his move he'll reveal them.
Adding to that:
Sterling is HELPING Nate do it.As sort of a deal "they stop doing crime and we let them go." He is willing to go along with it because Nate's motivation is to prevent what happened to his Father to the Team and Sterling, after all, is doing it for a friend (and maybe just for the man who helped save his daughter)
Edit: A thing I just realized. Look at Portland. A restaurant for Eliot to give into his cooking passion. A Theater for Sofie. It's giving them things to be rather than criminals...
