The CFPB is committed to improving the accessibility of its services to LEP persons. In developing its Language Access Plan, the CFPB engaged stakeholders to understand the opportunities to serve LEP persons and to ensure LEP individuals have access to the CFPB’s programs and services. To ensure meaningful access, the Bureau considers the following factors: (1) The number or proportion of LEP persons who would not receive the Bureau’s services absent efforts to remove language barriers; (2) The frequency and number of contact by LEP persons with the Bureau’s services; (3) The nature and importance of the services provided by the Bureau to people’s lives; and (4) The resources available to the Bureau (including costbenefit analysis) to provide services to LEP persons. The CFPB provides LEP individuals with access to information, services, activities, and programs through the following activities: 1. Translating Consumer-Facing Documents The Bureau translates critical consumer-facing documents into the most frequently encountered languages, as established by U.S. Census Bureau data or based on specific issues affecting a particular group of LEP individuals. The Bureau publishes a wider range of consumer-facing documents in Spanish than other frequently encountered languages. Translating public-facing documents into the languages most frequently encountered 6 is important when 6 Language Used in The United States 2007— American Community Survey Report—U.S. Census Bureau. According to the 2012 American Community Survey Report from the U.S. Census ´ Bureau, Spanish, Mandarin, French, Haitian Creole, Tagalog, Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese are the most common languages other than English that are spoken in the United States.

Given that Hispanics constitute 16.7 percent of the nation’s total population, making them the nation’s largest ethnic or racial minority, and that 62 percent of people who speak a language other than English at home speak Spanish,7 the Bureau translates certain consumerfacing materials into Spanish. The CFPB has also translated brochures, fact sheets and other materials about certain topics ´ into Chinese, French, French Creole, Korean, Tagalog, and Vietnamese. The Bureau audits translated materials to ensure quality and accuracy. 2. Handling Complaints From Consumers About Consumer Financial Products and Services The Bureau’s Office of Consumer Response (Consumer Response) hears directly from consumers about the challenges they face in the marketplace and brings consumers’ concerns to the attention of consumer financial product or service providers. Consumer Response currently accepts complaints about credit cards, mortgages, bank accounts and services, private student loans, vehicle and other consumer loans, credit reporting, money transfers, debt collection, payday loans, prepaid cards, credit repair and debt settlement services, title and pawn loans, and virtual currencies. The CFPB’s contact centers can assist consumers with complaints in over 180 languages, and consumers have the option to receive written communications in Spanish. The contact centers also accept inquiries from consumers on various consumer financial products and services as well as CFPB news and operations. The Bureau works to respond to these inquiries or refers consumers to other regulators and resources, as needed. Dated: September 25, 2014.
