Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Reading Room

Welcome to the Natural Resources Conservation Service Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Electronic Reading Room.

The FOIA Electronic Reading Room contains documents specifically identified for inclusion by the FOIA, as well as documents for which we have received multiple FOIA requests.

The documents that are required to be made available by the FOIA are:

  • final opinions made in the adjudication of cases;
  • statements of policy and interpretations adopted by the agency;
  • staff manuals and instructions that affect the public;
  • records that have been released in response to multiple written requests for information under the FOIA or are likely to be requested again.

NRCS only maintains an electronic (rather than a physical) reading room
