This form is for requesting an Annual Assessment Waiver which if approved, allows the BIA to waive the annual operation and maintenance (O&M) assessment for 1 year. BIA must determine that our irrigation facilities are not capable of delivering adequate irrigation water to owned or leased land due to deficiencies in the irrigation infrastructure per 25 CFR §171.700.

This application for Assessment Waiver must be received prior to the bill due date for the year which you are requesting the waiver.

What You Need

You will need the Annual Assessment Waiver Application Form, and the mailing address for your local project office, and relevant supporting documentation (including photos). Contact your local irrigation project for details on submitting the application.
