A. Using the language assistance delivery needs assessment above mentioned as an identifier, service providers must conduct outreach activities in those sites that meet or exceed the "Significant LEP Population and Essential Language" thresholds.
B. To reach the LEP community by county or service area, service providers could use several outreach methods, such as radio advertisements, television advertisements, newspaper advisements, and presentations at community gatherings and at job fairs in designated languages.
C. LEP Program Contacts must receive LEP related statistics for determining "Essential Languages" and "Significant LEP Populations" applicable to each program area, section and field office under their jurisdiction. A combination of the most current external Census data and the comprehensive internal program language usage could be used as an effective assessment tool.
D. The LEP Program Committee will assist LEP Program Contacts in providing instructions to Managers in programs and offices meeting the "Essential Language" criteria mentioned above regarding the LEP Outreach Plan.
A. Service providers that meet the "Essential Language" threshold must submit a yearly Outreach Plan for identified LEP populations to the designated LEP Program Contact.
B. The LEP Plan must specify the outreach methods used for each "Significant LEP Population" and identify who is responsible for implementing each aspect of the Outreach Plan. The LEP Plan must identify potential partners who may be available to assist in the service of target populations, and the outreach methods used to contact these partners.
C. The development of the LEP Program Plan must take into consideration the demographic data obtained from the US 2000 Census and other public census data together with Labor and Industry's program service demographic data.
D. The LEP Program Plan must also include processes and methods to notify the LEP customers that language assistance is available at no cost for Labor and Industry's services.
E. The LEP Program Contact must review the LEP Program Plan submitted by programs under his/her jurisdiction for conformance with L&I's policy.
Each LEP Program Contact, whose area of responsibility includes programs and offices that reach the threshold for new "Essential Language and Significant LEP Populations" and thus require an LEP Program Plan, will deliver an LEP Assessment Report to the LEP Program Committee annually. The LEP Assessment report will describe the status or level of LEP services currently performed, and identify additional services required for full LEP compliance with Title VI.
