FOIA Guide for journalists

It’s your government

The Headline Club is currently building a FOIA Guide that will, ultimately, include the names and contact information for FOIA officers at hundreds of government agencies on the state and local levels, particularly those covering the six-county Chicago region as well as tips, links and other resources to help individuals overcome barriers to accessing public information.

Originally a McCormick Foundation-funded initiative of the Chicago Headline Club and the Better Government Association, the FOIA Guide provides a comprehensive resource for journalists, bloggers, community activists and others to effectively use the Illinois Freedom of Information Act.

We welcome your thoughts and ideas on ways the Headline Club can better serve your FOIA needs.
