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 Request Form.
Email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Put “Freedom of Information Act Request” in the subject line.
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 three options). If you choose to submit a request electronically, do not follow-up with a written letter.
