How to Submit a FOIA Request

The OIG FOIA Requestor Service Center handles all requests for OIG information pursuant to the FOIA. You must submit your request in writing. You may submit your request by email to, by fax to 202-401-3778, or by mail to:

FOIA Officer
Office of Inspector General
Office of Legal Counsel
U.S. Dept. of HUD
451 Seventh St., SW, Room 8260
Washington, DC 20410-4500
(202) 708-1613

Information Required in the Request

Each request must reasonably describe the desired record including the name, subject matter, and number or date, where possible, so that the record may be identified and located. The request should also include the name, address, and telephone number of the requester, and the format in which the requester would like the desired record to be reproduced. In order to enable the OIG to comply with the time limitations set forth in §2002.17, the request should clearly indicate that the subject is a Freedom of Information Act request, in the subject line of an email or letter and on the envelope, if the request is mailed.

Fees and Fee Waivers

The OIG uses the same fee structure for FOIA requests as HUD.
