Freedom of Information Request Basics

You may be entitled to information from federal agencies, but first you may need to send a Freedom of Information Request. The Freedom of Information Act requires certain federal agencies to disclose previously withheld information when requested. A Freedom of Information Request is a formal document that can help you get the information you want.

Use the Freedom of Information Request document if:

  • You want information from a federal agency.
  • You regularly apply for government funding, and want possible legal documents ready to go.

A Freedom of Information Request can help get you access to information that's rightfully available from federal agencies. Maybe you want old grant proposals in order to make your application shine or maybe you're simply curious about something. Many government documents are public knowledge, however, you still need to ask. Luckily, sending a formal request is easy to do; all you need is a form letter and the address of the agency housing the information. You can get started quickly with a Freedom of Information Request.

Other names for this document: FOIA Request, Freedom of Information Request Letter
