PA Council on the Arts' Right-to-Know Procedures

To obtain access to PA Council on the Arts (PCA) records under the Pennsylvania Right-to-Know Law (RTKL), please complete the standard Right-to-Know form (PDF), and submit it by emailing the PCA Open Records Officer, or mailing it to the Agency Open Records Officer:

Attn: PA Council on the Arts Open Records Officer
PA Council on the Arts
216 Finance Building
Harrisburg, PA 17120

RTKL requests must be addressed to the PCA's Open Records Officer.

The PCA's regular business hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Any RTKL request received by the Agency Open Records Officer after the close of regular business hours shall be deemed to have been received by the office on the following business day.

While the PCA may fulfill verbal requests, the requestor cannot pursue the relief and remedies provided under the RTKL unless the request is in writing. RTKL requests are for public records, unless subject to an exemption from disclosure under the RTKL. In the event of an appeal to the Office of Open Records (OOR), the OOR may consider the request, the appeal, and any other records to be public.

The agency abides by and complies with the policies set forth in Management Directive 205.36, Right-To-Know Law (PDF).
