Language Access Plan

The HRA receives funds from the federal government to provide meaningful access to its programs and activities by persons with Limited English Proficiency (LEP). Language for LEP persons can be a barrier to accessing important housing benefits and services, understanding and exercising important rights, complying with applicable responsibilities, or understanding other information provided by the Section 8/Housing Choice Voucher program. In certain circumstances, failure to ensure LEP persons can effectively participate in or benefit from federally assisted programs and activities may violate the prohibition under Title VI against discrimination on the basis of national origin.

The HRA strives to treat all applicants and voucher holders fairly. To ensure that the local administration of the Section 8/Housing Choice Voucher Program is accessible to all, the Language Access Plan (LAP) has been developed and approved by the HRA board. The LAP is in accordance with federal guidelines (Executive Order 13166), and guidance provided by both the Department of Housing and Urban Development, and the Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity.
