Strengthening a Language Access Plan

Tuesday, October 2, 1:45 PM - 2:45 PM  

This session targets states that want to enhance their current Language Access Plan (LAP) or are in the process of developing an LAP.  This roundtable discussion will provide participants with an opportunity to discuss specific components of an LAP and to get feedback for strengthening their plans.  Participants are encouraged to bring a copy of their Language Access Plan, or preliminary documentation related to development of their LAP (if they don’t have a LAP) to the session.
