Homesteading in Alaska

Question: I've heard that there is free land in Alaska through the homesteading program. Where can I find out more?

Answer: At this time, there are no homesteading or other free land programs for the public. The federal program ceased in 1986. There are periodic sales of state lands.

For more information about federal land in Alaska, please visit https://www.blm.gov/media/public-room/alaska.
