Navigating the Fee-to-Trust Process for Indian Tribes
Is your tribe considering putting land into federal trust, but feeling overwhelmed by the process? Or are you still trying to decide if the potential benefits of putting land into trust outweigh the potential costs? In this hands-on class, our fee-to-trust expert will use a combination of lecture, case studies and facilitated discussions to help you understand BIA’s regulations, the application process, factors you should consider when deciding whether to put land into federal trust, and the ramifications such a move might have for your tribe or region.
Come ready to ask all the questions you want answers to, or just to listen and learn. The second half of Day 2 will be dedicated to a Q&A session with our expert instructor. You’ll also get a chance to share your experiences, compare notes and trade tips with other members of the class who are also going through, or considering going through, the fee-to-trust process.
You’ll leave this class confident in your ability to explain to your community why you should or should not request to have land placed into trust and which lands might be best to have placed into trust. Be sure and save the date for this important class or call us about bringing this training to your location.
This class is perfect for tribal leaders, council members, administrators, land managers, economic development directors, lawyers and interested stakeholders.
