How to obtain FOIA information   |   FOIA Act Request Form

Illinois Freedom of Information Act, 5 ILCS 140/1

Pursuant to the fundamental philosophy of the American constitutional form of government, it is declared to be the public policy of the State of Illinois that all persons are entitled to full and complete information regarding the affairs of government and the official acts and policies of those who represent them as public officials and public employees consistent with the terms of this Act. Such access is necessary to enable the people to fulfill their duties of discussing public issues fully and freely, making informed political judgments and monitoring government to ensure that it is being conducted in the public interest.

FOIA allows members of the public to access public records to promote government transparency and accountability. The principle mandate of the Act provides that upon submission of a written request, each public body shall make available to any person for inspection or copying any requested records that are subject to disclosure under the Act. Not all records are subject to disclosure. The Act provides a number of exemptions. Additional information regarding FOIA can be found at the Illinois Attorney General’s website:
