U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Language Access Plan   [open pdf - 418KB]

"This Language Access Plan implements DHS's language access policy and establishes a system within DHS to implement Executive Order 13166, Improving Access to Services for Persons with Limited English Proficiency (LEP) (August 11, 2000), which requires, among other things, that each Federal department and agency 'examine the services it provides to LEP persons and develop and implement a system by which LEP persons have 'meaningful access' to those services without unduly burdening the fundamental mission of the agency.' In addition to describing DHS's current language access activities, the plan includes steps to improve and increase language services for LEP individuals in operations, services, activities, and programs across DHS."
