Dear Ms. Raih,

We have received your request for "Funding allocation reports and statistical data generated for FY2016" and an acknowledgement letter will be sent to you shortly. I would like to receive some clarification in order to process your request:

1) For "funding allocation reports" we have received several similar FOIA requests in recent years and were able to provide charts in the format below. If this is the type of information you are requesting, can you please specify if you are looking for all states' info or which particular states and if you are only seeking FY 16 figures?

FY ## DCE/ SP allocations

State

$##,###.##

2) For "statistical reports for FY 2016", are you referring to a statistical report similar to the previous years listed here that breaks down by cultivation and eradication figures, arrests, and assets and weapons seizures? https://www.dea.gov/ops/cannabis.shtml

Thank you for your help.

Kind regards,

Dear Ms. Raih,

I'm following up because I don't know if my email displayed the chart format correctly, but for the first point we can provide the funding allocation per state by FY. Please advise which states are requested for FY16 and if there are any other requested years. For the second point, we just need confirmation that the report format on the DEA website is what you are seeking for statistical reports for FY16.

If neither of these is the information you are requesting, please let me know so we can discuss how to reformulate the request. You can also reach me at 202-307-4458 or the FOIA liaison at 202-307-7596.

Good morning,

To clarify, yes I am only seeking funding allocation reports for FY 2016. I would like this request to encompass all 50 states in the format you have provided with a few additions.

Are state agencies that receive this funding required by the DEA to report where specifically their funds are going (i.e. weapons or intelligence collecting technology)? If so, I would additionally request the state agencies that received funding for the program in FY2016 along with how these funds are being used.

In regards to the statistical reports for FY 2016 I am also seeking data in the format to which you have provided found on the DEA website. Let me know if I can be of further clarification, I appreciate your help with this request!

Sincerely,
Grace Raih
