Executive Order 13166 (EO 13166) challenges federal agencies to "implement a system by which [limited English-proficient or "LEP"] persons can meaningfully access… services consistent with, and without unduly burdening, the fundamental mission of the agency." When read in its entirety, and interpreted consistently with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1972, the Executive Order applies to all programs and activities of a federal agency, which is, essentially, everything the agency does.
The Executive Order requires Federal agencies that provide Federal financial assistance to develop guidance to clarify those obligations for recipients of such assistance ("recipient guidance").
In addition, the Executive Order requires all agencies to apply the four-factor analysis as Federal financial assistance recipients in providing meaningful access for LEP individuals to all of its federally conducted programs and activities. Each agency is required to develop a plan for taking reasonable steps to provide meaningful access for LEP persons, in light of the four-factor analysis.
LEP Executive Order 13166. Title VI of the Civil Rights Act prohibits discrimination on the basis of national origin, among other things. The LEP Executive Order (Executive Order 13166) ensures that, consistent with Title VI, persons with Limited English proficiency ("LEP") have meaningful access to federally conducted and federally funded programs and activities. The Order requires all agencies that provide Federal financial assistance to issue guidance on how Title VI applies to recipients of that assistance in their contact with persons who are LEP.
