Who must provide you with an interpreter? The following is a list, not all-inclusive, of who must provide LEP services: courts, hospitals, public defenders, Legal Aid, public and charter schools, public housing agencies, federal agencies (Social Security, Veterans Administration, I.R.S.), state agencies (DMV, Department of Labor, etc.), and county agencies that handle public benefits (Medicaid, food stamps, etc.). If a housing provider who receives federal funding fails to provide requested LEP services, you can file a complaint against them with the U.S. Department of Justice and may also be able to file a Fair Housing complaint with HUD for discrimination based on race or national origin.
