The final rule requires that covered entities post notices of nondiscrimination and taglines that alert individuals with limited English proficiency to the availability of language assistance services. To reduce burden and costs, OCR has translated a sample notice and taglines for use by covered entities into 64 languages. For translated materials, visit www.hhs.gov/civil-rights/forindividuals/section-1557/translated-resources/index.html.
The final rule requires each covered entity to post taglines in at least the top 15 non-English
languages spoken in the State in which the entity is located or does business. Those requirements
are modified for small sized significant communications such as postcards; for these, the final rule
requires entities to post a nondiscrimination statement and taglines in at least the top two non-English
languages spoken by individuals with limited English proficiency in the State.
