Geographic Area Covered: The nine-county DVRPC planning area, which covers the counties of Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia in Pennsylvania, and Burlington, Camden, Gloucester, and Mercer in New Jersey.
Abstract: The Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) is committed to upholding the principles and intentions of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and related nondiscrimination mandates in all of the Commission’s work, including publications, products, communications, public input, and decision-making processes. Language barriers may prohibit people who are Limited in English Proficiency (also known as LEP persons) from obtaining services, information, or participating in public planning processes. To better identify LEP populations and thoroughly evaluate the Commission’s efforts to provide meaningful access, DVRPC has produced this Limited English Proficiency Plan. This document follows the United States Department of Transportation’s policy guidance to conduct a four-factor analysis and create a five-step implementation plan.
Key Words: Civil Rights, commission, compliance, engagement, core planning documents, Executive Order, federal mandates, four-factor analysis, interpretation, LEP, language access, Limited English Proficiency, meaningful access, nondiscrimination, participation, public outreach, reasonable steps, translation, vital documents
