Sample letters and agency addresses

Since this guide was published, we have launched a special project called iFOIA that is designed to help requesters both compose and track FOIA requests. There is no charge for using this service, and you can both email requests and receive email responses directly through the iFOIA system (at least for agencies that accept responses by email).

(If you would still like to see a sample letter or complaint, you can use the letter wizard in iFOIA and generate a blank letter. Or use these Microsoft Word versions: FOIA Request Letter, FOIA Appeal Letter, FOIA Complaint, Vaughn Motion, Privacy Act Request.)
