Interior Announces Next Steps in Land Allotment

Considering expanding more public land to selection for program.

On Thursday, the Department of the Interior announced that it would be continuing to implement the Alaska Native Vietnam-era Veterans Land Allotment Program. This program was created in 2019, allowing the Bureau of Land Management to provide eligible veterans up to 160 acres from federal lands in Alaska. 1.6 million acres are currently available for these veterans.

Secretary Haaland expressed her commitment to the program saying, “We have a sacred obligation to America’s veterans. I know the sacrifices made by those who serve in our military, and I will not ignore a right owed to our Alaska Native Vietnam-era veterans. Interior Department personnel are moving forward expeditiously to ensure that Alaska Native Vietnam-era veterans are able to select the land allotments they are owed, with an expansive selection area.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For officials in the Interior Department as they look to follow up on the program for Alaska Native Veterans.
  • For God to give Secretary Haaland discernment as she leads the department.
  • For the president and his administration to seek the Lord’s guidance as they determine policy for veterans.
