The Land Buy-Back Program for Tribal Nations (Buy-Back Program) implements the land consolidation component of the Cobell Settlement, which provided a $1.9 billion fund to purchase fractional interests in trust or restricted land from willing sellers, at fair market value, within a 10-year period. Interested sellers receive payments directly into their IIM accounts. Consolidated interests are immediately transferred to tribal governments in trust for uses benefiting the tribes and their members.”
