links for online submission of foia requests

Some agencies have begun accepting requests under the Freedom of Information Act through electronic mail or online forms. Submitting requests in this manner is not only convenient, but it can also permit the requester to avoid delays in the mail that can be particularly acute with federal mail that is screened to avoid terrorist attacks.

As with all FOIA requests, before submitting your request it is important to make sure that you have identified the appropriate agency or subdivision of the agency that has the records that you seek.
