Payments to Counties Bankhead-Jones


Payment Reports

The USDA Forest Service processes payments to counties from the sale of resources under the provisions of Title III of the Bankhead-Jones Farm Tenant Act (7 U.S.C. 1012) July 22, 1937. These receipts primarily consist of mineral receipts collected by the Office of Natural Resource Revenue (ONRR), and grazing receipts collected by the Forest Service. After each calendar year, the Forest Service is required to pay to the county in which land is held by the Forest Service, 25 percent of receipts received from the use of grasslands and land utilization projects during the previous calendar year.
