FOIA Request Form
Under the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act, all public records shall be open to inspection and copying by any citizen of the State of Arkansas during the regular business hours of the custodian of the records. DHS must make public records available upon request unless the records are in active use or storage, in which case, DHS must do so within 3 working days. Disclosures are subject to various exemptions under federal and state law. You can request records by using the form below. If you have questions, please email them to DHS.FOIA@dhs.arkansas.gov. Commonly requested materials can be found here.
If you want copies of state or federal surveys of nursing homes in Arkansas or staffing reports, you no longer have to put in a request for those documents. You can find them for all facilities for the last five years here.
