What is the FOIA?

Since 1967, the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) has provided the public the right to request access to records from any federal agency.  It is often described as the law that keeps citizens in the know about their government. Federal agencies are required to disclose any information requested under the FOIA unless it falls under one of nine exemptions which protect interests such as personal privacy, national security, and law enforcement.
The FOIA also requires agencies to proactively post online certain categories of information, including frequently requested records.  As Congress, the President, and the Supreme Court have all recognized, the FOIA is a vital part of our democracy.

What is FOIA.gov?

FOIA.gov serves as the government’s comprehensive FOIA website for all information on the FOIA.   Among many other features, FOIA.gov provides a central resource for the public to understand the the FOIA, to locate records that are already available online, and to learn how to make a request for information that is not yet publicly available.  FOIA.gov also promotes agency accountability for the administration of the FOIA by graphically displaying the detailed statistics contained in Annual FOIA Reports, so that they can be compared by agency and over time.


Who can make a FOIA request?

Generally any person – United States citizen or not – can make a FOIA request.
