During the registration process it is required that you provide an email address which will be validated during the registration process to identify if a profile already exists for the provided email address.

  • If you have previously submitted requests in hard copy/fax/mail etc. to USDA we may already have your email address in your profile. If the email address exists you will be prompted to retrieve a temporary password which will be sent to the email address we have on file for you.
  • If you have previously submitted requests and the system accepts your email address you may want to contact the FOIA Office after your request is submitted so they can merge your profiles.

Upon completion of registration an email notification will be delivered to the email address provided with a temporary password to access your profile. It could take several minutes for the email to be delivered.  Be sure to check your spam or junk folder if you do not receive the email notification within 15 minutes.

3. Once logged in to your profile, be sure to change your temporary password.
