Leases & Permits

The BLM issues leases and permits for the public to use, occupy or develop public lands for a variety of purposes.  Examples include commercial filming and photography, advertising displays, crop harvesting, residential occupancy, recreation facilities, construction equipment storage, assembly yards and well pumps. 

Contact a local BLM Office to discuss your plans and determine required leasing and permitting.
