Fee Waiver Request Instructions

The Department of Justice encourages agencies to waive fees under the Freedom of Information Act, FOIA, whenever the fee waiver standard is met. Agencies are expected to grant fee waivers only where it is determined that the standard is met.

DECAF must abide by the Department of Justice standards. All requests for fee waivers will be reviewed to determine if the debtor qualifies. Upon receipt of all requested documents, allow 1-2 days for fee waiver processing. Courses may be taken after the fee waiver is approved or when payment for the course is complete.
