Foreign Language Access


Information: For any client receiving services paid for with federal funds the agency providing the services must provide an interpreter.

In order to ensure equal access to our services under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act, All Cuyahoga County HHS agencies provide interpretation and translation services for individuals with Limited English Proficiency. Please DO NOT use a family member, friend, a minor child or any software, electronic application, etc. as an interpreter.

Interpreter and translator services are available for interaction with any client who has Limited English Proficiency (LEP). Cuyahoga County HHS has a contract with a professional interpretation vendor for services. The services include interpreter services for clients who do not speak English well enough to communicate clearly during interaction and translation services for documents that require translation into another language. Our vendor, US Together has access to interpreters who speak over 200 languages.
