Description
 
The Office of Civil Rights, Dept. of Justice (DOJ), requires all recipients of federal financial assistance from DOJ to comply with federal laws that prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, and sex. This includes discrimination of people with limited English proficiency (LEP), which refers to persons who do not speak English as their primary language and who have a limited ability to read, speak, write, or understand English. Executive Order 13166,  Improving Access to Services for Persons with Limited English Proficiency, requires that the federal government and grant recipients take reasonable steps to ensure that people with LEP have meaningful access to the programs, services, and information they provide. DOJ requested that its funded agencies and programs develop creative solutions to respond effectively to the needs of culturally and linguistically diverse groups. A first step is to develop awareness and knowledge of and skills related to linguistic competency. The Community Capacity Development Office (CCDO), of DOJs Office of Justice (OJP)Programs, conducted a survey to determine the extent to which people with LEP are being served in the communities served by its Weed and Seed grant recipients. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
