Land and Revenues

Program Director:

Land and Revenues works to provide accurate data about land and mineral ownership and public revenues to communities, scholars, local governments, and other stakeholders.


Through amplifying the voices of marginalized farmers and heirs’ property owners, we seek to provide policymakers with the information they need to make informed decisions. Reports to Alcorn State University’s Center for Disadvantaged Farmers and Ranchers, report backs to project participants, podcasts, and scholarly papers reach a wide range of audiences.

Appalachian Heirs' Property Coalition

To amplify the economic power of locally-owned assets and encourage community-based economic development, LiKEN is organizing a coalition to directly assist owners of heirs' property in Eastern Kentucky and West Virginia. The Appalachian Heirs' Property Coalition (AHPC) is composed of community organizers, legal service providers, and natural resource professionals trained in agroforestry practices for Central Appalachia's mixed mesophytic forest. United under the umbrella of the AHPC, LiKEN can better coordinate with service providers to make the title clearing process affordable (or even free) and get heirs connected with the necessary services and resources.

The objective of the AHPC is to overcome the barriers to improved livelihoods and community development by offering affordable title clearing, estate planning and education, and forest management services.
