The HEARTH Act (Helping Expedite and Advance Responsible Tribal Home Ownership) of 2012 creates a voluntary, alternative land leasing process available to Tribes by amending the Indian Long-Term Leasing Act of 1955. The HEARTH Act will create new opportunities for Tribal self-governance, economic development, and renewable resource development. The Act permits Tribes to develop leasing regulations, subject to the approval of the Secretary of Interior. Tribes that choose to adopt their own leasing regulations under the Act’s authority will: 1) enjoy a greater measure of self-governance and control over leasing of Tribal lands; 2) create a leasing process tailored specifically to their Tribal needs; and 3) be able to implement a leasing process that will move at a Tribal determined pace rather than depending on BIA officials to take action. This course is important and recommended for all Councils and Boards as well as Tribal land leasing office personnel.
