What are trust lands?

Trust lands are parcels of land granted by Congress to Utah at statehood to support specific beneficiaries, including public schools, universities, hospitals, and reservoirs.  Trust lands are not public lands, but are generally open for public use, when possible.  Trust lands were allocated specifically to generate revenue to support our beneficiaries.  SITLA currently manages 3.4 million surface acres on behalf of our beneficiaries.
