Are they subject to FOIA?

I don't think they are subject to the federal FOIA. States have various laws regarding HOA records. Florida, for example, requires almost all records to be open to members for inspection and copying. Note that is to members, not the general public.

I'm sure some CA posters will chime in soon, and this site seems to be the definitive resource for CA:

Many records are available to Members (Owners) in CA HOAs. Se you own bylaws or perhaps your CC&Rs.

State legislation about this is in the Davis-Stirling Act. A CA HOA law firm compiles the site davis-stirling.com, which has a wonderful Main Index. See "records" in the index.
