Local Government Language Access Collaborative

Building Integrated Communities is delighted to announce a call for applications for the new Local Government Language Access Collaborative, a one-year interactive course designed to build capacity for North Carolina local governments to communicate with residents in community languages. Local government and community organization partners are eligible for funding to support efforts. Activities will take place from January 2023 until January 2024 and feature seven virtual workshops (1.5 hours each) and two in-person day events at UNC Chapel Hill.

During the course, each team will be guided through a process that includes:

  • learning about promising practices from immigrant leaders & practitioners;
  • conducting an internal language capacity assessment;
  • writing up a language access plan for local government;
  • implementing at least one recommendation from the language access plan.
