Webinar Regarding Limited English Proficiency Guidance

Executive Order 13166, Improving Access to Services for Persons with Limited English Proficiency (LEP), requires Federal agencies to develop processes that help make services available to persons who are not fully proficient in English.  Within Rural Development, the Office of Civil Rights has been spearheading this initiative and will be hosting a series of webinars to aid in understanding the agency’s LEP requirements for assisted programs.  The webinars are open to anyone interested in attending; however, those involved in the certified loan application packaging process and/or the self-help program are strongly encouraged to attend.  Each webinar (listed below) will cover the same content and is scheduled for approximately two hours.  All attendees should confirm their attendance by emailing Darren Kaihlanen at Darren.kaihlanen@wdc.usda.gov.  For group attendance, please designate one person to email the attendee roster.  If there is a need for special accommodations, please contact Mr. Kaihlanen as soon as possible and at least two hours prior to the intended webinar.
