Right to Know Law/Freedom of Information Act


Anyone is able to make a formal request for public information of state and local agencies in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania under the Right to Know Law (RTKL). People can also request information from Federal agencies under the Freedom of Information Act.

There’s a lot to know about the process before making a request under RTKL and FOIA, so we’re assembling a set of resources, and looking to organize a set of workshops and training sessions. We also hope to work directly with local public agencies to improve the processes around making and responding to RTKL requests.
