Limited English Proficiency (LEP)

Pursuant to Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, policy guidance emphasizes that in order to avoid discrimination against persons with Limited English Proficiency (LEP) on grounds of national origin, recipients of NASA financial assistance must take adequate steps to ensure that people who are not proficient in English can effectively participate in and benefit from the recipient’s programs and activities. Therefore, LEP persons should expect to receive the language assistance necessary to afford them meaningful access to the recipients’ programs and activities, free of charge.
