The families of the victims will be able to see the files before any are made public as they may contain sensitive information about their relatives' last moments.
Calls for the files to be released were renewed in April at the 20th anniversary of the disaster, when fans were crushed to death at a football match.
"Hillsborough was a terrible tragedy and the government is committed to full disclosure of information held centrally and by local agencies in order to help provide a permanent record of documentation relating to the tragedy," said a Home Office spokesman.
"Disclosure will take into account the wishes of the families to protect sensitive and personal information about the victims.
"With this in mind, the government will seek to ensure that representatives of the Hillsborough families will have prior disclosure of documents on an agreed timescale before they are made more widely available."
To ease overcrowding outside the Leppings Lane end, police opened an exit gate, allowing supporters to flood into the central pens. Liverpool fans, fenced in, were crushed to death.
Following the tragedy, Lord Justice Peter Taylor was commissioned to conduct an inquiry that would have a far-reaching impact on the game.
He was deeply critical of the police response at Hillsborough, but his most significant recommendations were the removal of perimeter fencing and the creation of all-seater stadiums.
The report has been cited as playing a part in the transformation of English football from the dark days of 1980s into the globally-watched spectacle of nowadays.
