This program was established to protect all natural resources located on all trust/restricted properties. This program leases trust/restricted properties for farming and grazing purposes while ensuring the natural resources are protected. This is accomplished by inspecting the properties, writing a conservation plan for the lessee to follow and follow up inspections to ensure compliance. All leases must meet federal guidelines and be approved by the Southern Plains Regional Bureau of Indian Affairs Office.
This program which was compacted from the Bureau of Indian Affairs provides funds to obtain appraisals for fair Annual rental, fair market value and trespass appraisals on trust/restricted properties from an independent appraiser. All appraisals received by this office must be approved by the Chief Area Appraiser at the Southern Plains Regional Bureau of Indian Affairs Office.
