The Buy-Back Program is a collaborative effort involving the Interior, Tribes and individuals. It seeks to reduce the number of fractional interests in tracts of Indian trust or restricted lands. Ownership interests in fractionated tracts will be purchased from individuals that would like to voluntarily sell for fair market value (defined as: any tract with more than one landowner).
Lands bought by the Buy-Back Program will stay in trust or restricted status and be transferred to the tribe that has jurisdiction over the land, without any liens attached. This effort is viewed as strengthening tribal sovereignty by unifying tribal lands for the tribal benefit and use, such as economic development, housing, and cultural preservation.
