FY 2014 Land Buy-Back Program for Tribal Nations: The Secretary of the Interior established the Land Buy-Back Program for Tribal Nations (Buy-Back Program) to implement the land consolidation provisions of the Cobell Settlement Agreement, which provided $1.9 billion to consolidate fractional land interests across Indian country. The Buy-Back Program allows interested individual owners to sell their land and transfer ownership of their interests to the tribe of jurisdiction. This effort will strengthen tribal sovereignty and put decision-making in the hands of the tribal government, freeing up resources that have been locked-up as land interests have fractionated over time. The Buy-Back Program is interested in partnering with tribes to gain their direct participation in land consolidation efforts and intends to enter into cooperative agreements with tribes to capitalize on their abilities to minimize administrative costs and improve the overall effectiveness of the Program. The Department announced on November 8, 2013 that it is currently soliciting cooperative agreement applications from tribes with jurisdiction over the vast majority of highly fractionated trust lands for consolidation under the program. The Program has developed an implementation strategy that focuses its initial efforts on the reservations with approximately 90% of the purchasable fractional interests for the next several years. For more information about the implementation strategy and the Program in general, please visit the website at http://www.doi.gov/buybackprogram. PLEASE NOTE: this is a 10-year program. The expiration on this posting reflects this current opportunity, and new opportunities will be posted for the duration of the program.
