Supporting Immigrant Communities and Those with Limited English Proficiency During the Pandemic: Stakeholder Perspectives from Pennsylvania

Download Material

In June 2020, immigrant community leaders and other stakeholders working directly with immigrant communities and those with limited English proficiency in Pennsylvania were invited to complete an online survey to help the PA Department of Health’s Office of Health Equity better understand the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on immigrant/LEP communities in the Commonwealth. 

The survey was developed by a working group addressing pandemic-related disparities specific to immigrant/LEP communities. This White Paper shares key findings from the survey and includes open-ended responses that provide more detail on the top pandemic-related challenges experienced by immigrant/LEP communities.
