Language and Disability Access
The City of New York is committed to ensuring that New Yorkers who have limited English proficiency (LEP) are able to access information, programs, and services offered by NYC government.
The City is governed by different language access laws. Local Law 30 of 2017 (LL30) is one of these laws. LL30 is one of the strongest laws in the country and requires that covered city agencies appoint a language access coordinator, develop language access implementation plans, provide telephonic interpretation in at least 100 languages, translate their most commonly distributed documents into the 10 designated citywide languages, and post signage about the availability of free interpretation services, among other requirements.
The City of New York is committed to ensuring that New Yorkers who have limited English proficiency (LEP) are able to access information, programs, and services offered by NYC government. The Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice (MOCJ) is committed to providing multilingual information on all resources MOCJ offers to communities and stakeholders as we work to improve public safety and maintain healthy communities for all New Yorkers.
