Language Assistance to Persons with Limited English Proficiency (LEP)
DHMH LLEPCs act as the liaison between the OEOP Equal Access Compliance Unit and their office/agency to address LEP concerns by assisting employees, clients, the general public who are limited English proficient, as well as other staff tasked with ensuring LEP individuals have equal access to services offered through DHMH and its programs.
The LLEPC also disseminates LEP information to the local entity staff and clientele, coordinates translation and interpretation services, where applicable, produces records and reports LEP data annually by July 30th, attends training, assists with training staff within their agency or office and forwards complaints of discrimination related to the delivery of services based on national origin or non-compliance of the LEP policy to the OEOP Equal Access Compliance Unit.
