Official Government Website

Transparency is important to the Idaho Department of Lands because it helps taxpayers understand how public funds are spent and how our work helps fund education and other endowment beneficiaries. Transparency also provides a vital check on government power and lays the groundwork for sound public policy. We are committed to being fiscally responsible, following the law, ensuring your government is transparent, and making information about IDL’s operations readily available.

Public Records Requests for 2021

Unlike the federal Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), Idaho’s own Public Records Act makes it very easy for citizens to request copies government records. Our state law requires government agencies at all levels in Idaho to respond to requests quickly.  The law also assumes that all public records, unless expressly exempted by law, are disclosable.  The Office of the Attorney General publishes an informative guide to help citizens request public information.



IDL publishes periodic newsletters about our programs. Add you name to our mailing lists. You can edit your account preferences at any time.

Land Board Minutes

The Land Board generally meets monthly in Boise. Minutes from these meetings along with briefing materials presented at the meeting are available online.


State agencies must post written final orders online. These orders are the written resolution of cases that have been adjudicated in a hearing, and are relied upon as precedent.
