What is FOIA?

The 1966 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) permits any person to request access to federal agency records or information. The Small Business Administration (SBA) as a federal agency is required under the FOIA to disclose records upon receipt of a written request, except for records that are protected from disclosure by the nine exemptions or three exclusions contained in the Act. Persons may fax requests and are also able to request documents in an electronic format under the 1996 Electronic Freedom of Information Act Amendments (EFOIA).

This form is a statement from SBA that the organization is an equal opportunity employer as well as equal treatment of clients.
