HRSA's Freedom of Information Act
Home Page

Within the HRSA Web site you will find a wealth of public information available at your fingertips. You will be able to review it on-line or download it for future use. You can use our search engine to help you find what you're looking for.

If you check all these resources for public information but you still don't see what you need, then you can consider filing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. The Freedom of Information Act, Title 5 of the United States Code, section 552, is a federal statute which affords any person the right to obtain federal agency records, unless the records (or a part of the records) are protected from disclosure by any of the nine exemptions contained in the law. On October 2, 1996, the Electronic Freedom of Information Act Amendments of 1996 (E-FOIA, for short) was signed into law. E-FOIA makes it possible for you to have electronic access to important information in HRSA's Electronic Reading Room.

This home page will help you understand how the FOIA can be used to obtain information which is not otherwise publicly available. If you wish to visit HRSA's FOIA Public Reading Room in person, it is located at:

  • Freedom of Information office, HRSA, 5600 Fishers Lane, Room 14-15, Rockville, MD 20857

Hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
