Arizona State Land Department
Welcome. The Arizona State Land Department manages approximately 9.2 million acres of State Trust lands within Arizona. These lands were granted to the State under the provisions of the federal Enabling Act that provided for Arizona’s statehood in 1912. These lands are held in trust and managed for the sole purpose of generating revenues for the 13 State Trust land beneficiaries, the largest of which is Arizona’s K-12 education. In FY 2013 Trust land revenues exceeded $318,000,000. See more...
NOTICE TO CUSTOMERS - The Department will be initiating a document scanning project in July, 2014 and it is expected to last nearly a year. During this timeframe some of our documents will be off-site for approximately two weeks at a time. We ask for your patience during this time. If your request must meet a legal deadline we will do our best to retrieve the information for you. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause. Through this process, we hope to make our records more readily and efficiently accessible and at the same time protect and preserve irreplaceable documents. Thank you for your cooperation.
