USDA FOIA Points of Contact

Before submitting FOIA requests, we encourage you to review USDA’s website. USDA routinely posts information so you may find what you are looking for is already posted.

You should also keep in mind that because we have a decentralized FOIA program, each FOIA agency or staff office is independently handling and processing its requests. Therefore, before emailing or mailing your request, you should try to determine whether it is likely that the agency or staff office will have the records you are seeking. You can view the descriptions of each FOIA agency or staff office by clicking on the title below.

If after reviewing the descriptions, you are unsure about which FOIA agency or staff office will have responsive records, submit your request to the USDA Departmental FOIA Officer at the address below.
