Federal Land Transaction Facilitation Act (FLTFA)

Authorized by Congress in 2000, the Federal Land Transaction Facilitation Act (FLTFA) allows the Department of the Interior (DOI) agencies and the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) to use the proceeds from sales of Bureau of Land Management (BLM) lands to acquire inholdings in national parks, national wildlife refuges, national forests and BLM and designated areas, including the National Landscape Conservation System. FLTFA provides federal agencies with an important funding source to complement the Land and Water Conservation Fund, land exchanges, and other federal programs. It is a self-funded program requiring no additional appropriations.
