Alaska Homesteading of Vacant State Land, Proposition 4 (1978)
The Alaska Homesteading of Vacant State Land Initiative, also known as Proposition 4, was on the November 7, 1978 ballot in Alaska as an indirect initiated state statute, where it was approved. The measure made all vacant, unappropriated and unreserved state general grant land available for homesteading until 30 percent or 30,000,000 acres of the available land, whichever comes first, has passed into private ownership. A resident who homesteads for three years would be eligible for one grant of 40 acres, except in southeast Alaska, where the homesteader would be eligible for one grant of 20 acres. A resident who homesteads for five years would be eligible for two grants of 40 acres, or 80 acres total. A resident who homesteads for ten years would be eligible for four grants of 40 acres, or 160 acres in total.
