FOIA Requests

In accordance with the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and USDA regulations at 7 CFR, any person can request access to USDA Forest Service (FS) records. The FOIA requires the FS to allow the public to have access unless the information is exempt under the FOIA from mandatory disclosure (e.g., classified national security, business proprietary, personal privacy, investigative).

Your request must be in writing (view a sample FOIA request letter). Indicate that you are making a request under the FOIA, and address the request to the Region or Station that is responsible for the information you are requesting.

If you are not sure which District within the Ozark-St. Francis National Forests has the information you want, send your request to the Ozark-St. Francis National Forests FOIA Officer at the following address:
