About the Commission: Public Information

NOTE: Information about how to make an APRA request has moved to a new page.

Executive Order 20-46 relating to Public Meetings and Public Records Requests has been extended through April 29, 2021. This order relieves public bodies “from the prohibitions regarding use of telephonic or electronic communication to conduct meetings,” contained in Rhode Island General Laws 42-46-5(b) and makes provisions to ensure free public access to the meeting of the public body for members of the public through adequate, alternative means.

Beginning on July 8, 2020 and until further notice, the Rhode Island Historical Preservation & Heritage Commission will conduct virtual Public Meetings. Information about how to join the meeting is included in the specific agenda document linked below.
