A

Yes. Affirmative fair housing outreach to persons with LEP is considered a special outreach effort. If a Grantee determines that there is a presence of LEP populations within their own unique target populations, then special outreach efforts need to be performed and these efforts can be described in the Affirmative Fair Housing Marketing Plan (AFHMP). For example, if a Grantee’s target population includes persons with disabilities living on the street, and the Grantee is aware that there is a significant Hispanic population living on the streets, it may choose to hire a bilingual English/Spanish staff person to conduct special outreach efforts.
