Leasing Basics

Federally-recognized Tribes and their members can negotiate long-term leases of tribal trust and restricted lands, for business, residential, agricultural, and other purposes under 25 U.S.C. § 415 (The Indian Long-Term Leasing Act) and the BIA’s implementing regulations at 25 CFR Part 162 including: Subpart B: Agricultural Leases, Subpart C: Residential Leases, Subpart D: Business Leases and Subpart E: Wind and Solar Resource Leases. Leases entered into by tribes under 25 CFR Part 162 require approval by the Secretary of the Interior. The Secretary’s approval authority for leases is generally delegated to BIA Regional Directors and/or Agency Superintendents. The HEARTH Act provides a process where Federally Recognized Tribes can develop their own leasing regulations and execute leases without secretarial approval of each lease
