If you’re developing a limited English proficiency plan, you should check out the free LEP Baseline Report. This free web application makes it easy to get LEP statistics and data in seconds. A wide range of planners and researchers use this tool for everything from limited English proficiency plans to planning public involvement outreach for infrastructure projects during the NEPA process.
The free LEP Baseline Report tool is going to get a nod from Mark Bishop with the Michigan Alliance Against Hate Crimes during the National Association of Victim Assistance Administrators Conference. A big thank you to Mark for helping spread the word about this free resource. For this conference, I put together a quick handout that walks you through exactly how to use the LEP Baseline Report to get LEP statistics for your limited English proficiency plans and other projects.
Please pass on this information to other folks that you know who need LEP statistics and data. If you need a quick overview about limited English Proficiency, check out Limited English Proficiency (LEP) in a Nutshell. If you have any ideas for improvements to the LEP Baseline Report, please leave me a comment.
