There are several ways to submit a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request:
- Submit a request through the National FOIA Portal.
- Use the Department of the Interior’s FOIA Public Access Link (account required).
- Write a letter to the USGS FOIA Office using one of the addresses listed on the USGS FOIA Connect page . Mark your letter and the envelope as “Freedom of Information Act Request.”
Electronic submissions are preferred (the first two options). If you choose to submit a request electronically, please do not follow-up with a written letter.
