The Language Access Plan is the plan for the judicial district to ensure meaningful access to court services for persons with limited English proficiency or deaf or hard of hearing in compliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act, the Pennsylvania Interpreter Act, and the Administrative Regulations Governing Court Interpreters for Persons With Limited English Proficiency and for Persons Who Are Deaf or Hard of Hearing. The purpose of the plan is to provide a framework for the provision of timely and effective language assistance to persons with limited English proficiency and deaf and hard of hearing persons who come in contact with the judicial district.
