Find a Lease and Help Fund Idaho

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.

2025 Residential Cottage Site Leasing Plan

The State Board of Land Commissioners approved the 2025 Residential Cottage Site Leasing Plan on December 20, 2022. The new plan will begin January 1, 2025.
