The Providence Housing Authority has developed the following procedures to provide you with access to public records in an expeditious and courteous manner:
In order to ensure that you are provided with the public records you seek in an expeditious manner, we ask that you complete a Public Records Request Form and return it to the nearest PHA Management Office or send directly to the PHA’s designated Public Records Officer, Mark C. Ouellet, at the following mailing address:
Public Records Officer
Providence Housing Authority
100 Broad Street
Providence, RI 02903
You may also contact Mark C. Ouellet directly at 401-709-1141 or at MarkO@pha-providence.com
The regular business hours of the Authority are Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Please be advised that the Access to Public Records Act allows the PHA ten (10) business days to respond to your request and that time period may be extended for an additional twenty (20) business days for “good cause”. We appreciate your understanding and patience.
For additional information regarding your rights, you may obtain the Attorney General’s Guide to Open Government, which can be found at http://www.riag.ri.gov/civil/opengovernment
