National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) Webinars
In October 2013, the Buy-Back Program took part in a series of NCAI-hosted webinars to explore the Program's appraisal and acquisition processes. Part One of the series examined the Buy-Back Program’s Land Valuation process, covering topics such as how property value is determined on fractionated lands and how those appraisals will be conducted. Part Two focused on the Acquisition Phase of the Buy-Back Program, addressing how the Program will prepare and distribute offers to potential sellers, and what the next steps are when the offer packet arrives in the mail.
