The Department of Agriculture (USDA) regulations require recipients of Federal financial assistance to provide meaningful access to Limited English Proficient (LEP) persons. Coverage extends to a recipient’s entire program or activity, i.e., to all parts of a recipient’s operations.
The College of Agriculture and Life Sciences has developed a Language Access Plan that applies to research and Extension projects, programs, or other outreach events or activities hosted, sponsored or provided by faculty, staff, graduate students and volunteers on behalf of CALS, NC State Extension, N.C. Cooperative Extension, or the NC Agricultural Research Service (NCARS).Language Access Plan
