Open Public Records Act (OPRA)

OPRA is a New Jersey statute that governs the public’s access to government records in New Jersey. The law is compiled in the statutes as N.J.S.A. 47:1A-1 et seq. Specifically, OPRA is intended to:

  • Expand the public’s right of access to government records;
  • Create an administrative appeals process if access is denied; and
  • Define what records are and are not “government records.”

Hudson County has a new OPRA system effective June 1, 2022. Please submit your request(s) via the button below:
