The National Housing Law Project (NHLP) will conduct a free webinar regarding the language access rights of survivors of domestic and sexual violence who have difficulty with English (known as limited English proficiency, or LEP). The webinar will be held on Tuesday, October 20 at 2 pm ET.
Domestic and sexual violence survivors face numerous barriers in getting and keeping housing. The barriers are even greater when the survivor has difficulty with English. Federal law requires that recipients of federal financial assistance, including public housing agencies, provide meaningful language assistance to LEP persons.
The webinar will cover federal language access requirements, provide enforcement updates, discuss special considerations when using interpreters in the domestic and sexual violence context, and offer best practices for working with LEP survivors.
