Limited English Proficiency (LEP)

As part of a larger effort to comply with Executive Order 13166, MassHousing is working to make its vital rental housing documents available in Cambodian, Chinese, Haitian Creole, Italian, Portuguese (Brazilian), Portuguese (European), Russian, Spanish and Vietnamese.

Executive Order 13166 requires federal, state and local agencies that receive federal funding to ensure that people with Limited English Proficiency (LEP) have meaningful access to their programs and services. The U.S. Department of Justice is coordinating the interagency LEP effort.

On this page, you will find links to translated versions of MassHousing's vital rental housing documents, as well as a number of LEP-related resources.
