HUD, Nebraska reach agreement on LEP

“According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Nebraska’s Hispanic population with limited English proficiency increased 77 percent between 2000 and 2010. In addition, the state is also experiencing growing populations of persons of Sudanese and Somali origin. In July 2011, HUD reviewed the Nebraska DED’s operations for compliance with civil rights requirements and found that it had failed to comply with its LEP obligations under Title VI.”
