Implementing LEP Rules; Charging Extra Fees
In this month’s feature, we discussed how HUD requires recipients of federal financial assistance to take reasonable steps to ensure that people with limited English proficiency (LEP) have meaningful access to all federally funded programs. These steps include proactive outreach to non-English-speaking people who are eligible applicants for, and residents of, government-subsidized housing. Site owners may need to provide interpretation services or translation of vital documents used in assisted housing.
