Generating Revenue from Endowment Land

The Land Board and IDL have statutory authority to lease  approximately 2.5 million acres of endowment land for residential or cottage site use.

Revenue generated from residential leasing provides vital funding to the endowment beneficiaries, including Idaho’s public schools. Idaho’s constitution requires IDL to maximize the revenue generated from these lands for the beneficiaries.

Any individual, company or governmental agency that wishes lease endowment land for residential purposes must obtain a lease from IDL.
