Language Access Plan

In July 2017, the New York City Council passed Local Law 30, which mandated language access to be provided by all city agencies. One of the law's key requirements mandates each city agency to designate a language access coordinator and to develop and implement a language access implementation plan to ensure meaningful language access to their services.
