How to Submit a FOIA Request

brown page divider The Public
The public may request records, data and other documents from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service under the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C 552).  Because the Service is a decentralized agency, most records are maintained in Serviced field Offices and our Regional Office.  Region 6 has Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Officers in the Budget and Administration Regional Office, as FOIA officers directs FOIA requests to the correct program and oversees the Region 6 FWS FOIA program.
