Fees and Waiver of Fees

There is no initial fee for submitting a FOIA request. However, an agency may charge fees for searching, reviewing, and reproducing records as provided in 1 DCMR 408. You may include in your request letter a specific statement limiting the amount of fees you are willing to pay.  Please be aware that you may have to pay search and/or review fees even if the search does not locate any responsive records or if records are located but are withheld as exempt.

You may request a waiver or reduction of fees in your request letter. You must include a statement describing how the requested records will be used to benefit the general public.  Pursuant to DC Official Code 2-532(b), if the public body determines that a waiver or fee reduction is in the public interest, i.e., furnishing the records primarily benefits the general public, a waiver or reduction may be granted.
