  AboutWho We Are

Trust Land Stewards

We are stewards of Utah’s trust lands and are responsible for generating revenue from them for the benefit of public schools and other important state institutions—both now and for future generations. Our mission is to enhance the value of trust lands and maximize economic return for our beneficiaries. When The Trust Lands Administration was created the Permanent Fund was $50 million and has since grown to over $3.2 billion.

Utilizing the Trust Lands

We transform trust land assets into greater economic prosperity for our beneficiaries and local communities. Trust Lands generate revenue through energy development, real estate planning, and surface resource use.

Trust Lands Stewardship & Conservation

Our fiduciary duty includes the responsibility to preserve these resources for the long-term support of trust beneficiaries, primarily Utah’s school children of today and tomorrow.
