Skip to Page Content

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is a federal law that permits individuals to request access to federal agency information and documents, except for records protected from disclosure by FOIA.

Before submitting a FOIA request, please be sure to thoroughly browse NCD's website, including About Us, Newsroom,Progress Reports, Publications & Policy Briefs, Meetings & Events, and the NCD Policy Areas, which contain extensive information already available to the public.

When submitting a FOIA request to NCD, the requestor should:

  • State the request is being made under the Freedom of Information Act;
  • Be as specific as possible in identifying requested records;
  • Include his or her name, address, and phone number.

NCD will make every effort to respond to FOIA requests as quickly and as thoroughly as possible.

NCD’s FOIA Public Liaison is Amy Nicholas, Senior Attorney Advisor.
