Freedom of Information Law - FOIL

The Freedom of Information Law was created to give citizens the right to know the process of governmental decision-making and to review the documents and statistics leading to determinations that are basic to a free society.

Requests for information are accepted in person, by mail, by fax or by email.  Requests can be made by downloading the NRMHA’s FOIL Application or by letter; if from legal counsel, the letter should be on the firm’s letterhead.

When making a FOIL Application be as specific as you can, pertaining to the requested information.  The Record Access Officer will research and respond within (5) business days.

In some instances, the FOIL Application can be denied, such as if the request is too broad and unreasonable in scope.  Any denial can be appealed within ten (10) days to the Housing Authority. All FOIL requests are to be filed through this office
