LEP and Title VI Videos

Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, and national origin in programs and activities receiving federal financial assistance.  National origin discrimination includes, among other things, failing to provide meaningful access to individuals who are limited English proficient (LEP).  Executive Order 13166 requires federal agencies that provide federal financial assistance to develop guidance to clarify the language access obligations of recipients of such assistance.

The videos listed below explain the Title VI obligations of recipients of federal financial assistance and federal agencies pursuant to Executive Order 13166.
