CAP funds interpreting services for DoD employees who attend job related training sessions lasting two days or longer, but not to exceed two weeks. CAP will only consider funding services if the training is held in a DoD office or facility. Training held in non-DoD facilities and offices, including those occupied by CAP’s federal partners or private entities, are not eligible for consideration because the host, whether a federal agency or recipient of federal funds, has a legal obligation to ensure equal access. Complete CAP Accommodation Request Forms for sign language, oral or tactile interpreting services must be submitted no less than 15 business days prior to the training/course.
Please provide the following information when submitting a CAP request:
Copy of training/course description
Copy of training/course registration
Start and end dates
Start and end times for each day
Location of training/course
Onsite point of contact (POC) information, including name, title, phone number and email address
Any special instructions, such as: the need for interpreters with security clearances, parking arrangements, public transportation, etc…
Please note, the requesting DoD agency must comply with the sign language, oral or tactile interpreting agency's cancellation policies (usually 48 or 72 hours). Please email the CAP Assessment Team at least one week (five business days) before the scheduled training/course if you need to cancel. Failure to comply with these policies may result in the requesting agency being responsible for any late cancellation fees.
