Limited English Proficiency (LEP) Plan
The LEP Plan seeks to ensure that where substantial numbers of residents exist who do not speak or read English proficiently, these individuals have access to the planning process and published information, and that public notification is provided in other languages. The plan includes a four-part analysis and lays out how the BRTB will provide services to individuals with Limited English Proficiency.
The Plan can be translated to other languages by visiting translate.google.com and clicking on the "Documents" hyperlink. From there, you will then be prompted to upload the PDF and select your target language. Please note this feature may not be enabled on all mobile devices at this time. Print versions are also available at the Baltimore Metropolitan Council.
Goal for Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program
The BRTB adopted Resolution #15-20 to ensure that DBEs have an equal opportunity to participate in the metropolitan transportation planning process. The BRTB establishes a DBE participation goal each fiscal year. The current DBE participation goal, as adopted in Resolution #23-20, is twenty-six point two percent (26.2%).
Accommodations for Americans with Disabilities
The BRTB must adhere to the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. In particular, Title II requires the BRTB to make reasonable accommodations to provide access to its programs, services and activities, as well as to its premises, in order to avoid discrimination.
To ensure reasonable access to its premises and to further ensure reasonable access to its programs and activities, BMC staff developed a Title II of Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan.
Vulnerable Population Index
To support public engagement and project planning efforts, BMC staff developed the Vulnerable Population Index (VPI). This tool uses data obtained from the decennial Census and the American Community Survey (ACS) to determine the regional distribution of each of seven vulnerable populations. These populations are based on the following indicators: poverty, minority (non-Hispanic, non-white), minority (Hispanic), LEP, disabled, elderly, and people with no car.
