Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Requests

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is a federal statute that allows any person to obtain records of a federal agency. The agency may only withhold records that are exempt from disclosure by FOIA. To get more information on the eight FOIA exemptions the NCUA may claim to protect information in its records, consult the FOIA Exemptions. If you believe that records were withheld from you illegally, you can enforce your FOIA rights by filing an appeal with the agency and ultimately by filing a lawsuit in federal District Court.

The following links provide guidance on submitting a FOIA request, the FOIA Requestor Service Center and the most frequently requested information. They also provide information regarding the regulations pertaining to FOIA, reports, and appeals.
