(Title VI) and its accompanying, regulations. The guidance focused on recipients of DOJ financial assistance (primarily law, enforcement agencies, departments of corrections, courts, domestic violence service providers,, and entities having a law enforcement or juvenile justice mission). That guidance has served as a, launching point for COR's [Coordination and Review Section] training efforts and discussions with federal, state, and other partners, on the subject of language assistance.
