The Lincoln Institute of Land Policy (LILP), a Cambridge, Mass.-based nonprofit and tax-exempt educational institution, has merged with the Lincoln Foundation Inc. of Scottsdale, Ariz., to form a private operating foundation dedicated to research, education and demonstration projects on land issues.

According to a LILP representative, future goals of the foundation are to concentrate on energy issues, such as land use for wind power development. The IRS approved this merger in the fall of 2006.

"We will continue to provide courses and seminars," says Gregory K. Ingram, LILP's president, "but we will do more research, evaluations and demonstration projects, produce reports and publications, and convene practitioners and policymakers on the most important issues surrounding land policy, taxation, planning and development today."
