U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Language Access Plan [November 2016]   [open pdf - 602KB]

"This Language Access Plan (LAP) implements the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) language access policy and establishes a system within U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 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 agency 'examine the services it provides and develop and implement a system by which LEP persons can meaningfully access those services consistent with, and without unduly burdening, the fundamental mission of the agency.' In addition to describing CBP'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 CBP."
