View the full FAQs on the Alaska Native Veterans Allotment Act HERE on the Bureau of Lands Management website. Important excerpts below.
“The Department of the Interior and the Department of Veterans Affairs will conduct outreach to the eligible individuals. Alaska Native Vietnam Era Veterans do not need to apply immediately for their allotment. Once BLM has worked through all of the processes, Alaska Native Veterans who served during Vietnam Era will be notified to apply.
While that is being done, the BLM, with input from other agencies, potential applicants, and the general public, will draft the regulations that will guide the program and identify public lands that will be available for allotment within 18 months.”
What can I do now?
If you believe that you are eligible under the Act, we encourage you to update your address with the BIA and VA. You can also double check with each agency whether you are listed in their databases as meeting the definition for Alaska Native or Vietnam-era veteran respectively.
