This report addresses whether adult TANF clients with limited English proficiency (LEP) receive similar levels of services from DSHS and the DSHS Economic Services Administration compared to adult TANF clients with a greater command of the English language, and if they experienced similar employment outcomes. The analysis is based on adult TANF clients (LEP and non-LEP) who received services in State Fiscal Year 2003. Data available for SFY 03 suggests that TANF adults who are limited English proficient (LEP) receive a comparable amount of DSHS and ESA services compared with TANF adults who are not.
