Owners & Tenants

Government programs designed to benefit the public as a whole often result in acquisition of private property, and sometimes in the displacement of people from their residences, businesses, nonprofit organizations, or farms.

The information on this page provides basic information on your rights as an owner or tenant of real property to be acquired for a federally-funded program or project.

The agency responsible for the federally-funded program or project in your area will have specific information regarding your acquisition. Please contact the sponsoring agency to receive answers to your specific questions.
