About this resource:

The U.S. Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is a law that confers rights to access information from the U.S. federal government. It is often described as the law that keeps citizens “in the know” about their government.  Since any person – whether or not a US citizen – can avail themselves of most FOIA information access rights, this is a helpful guide to a potentially useful source.
