To provide meaningful and practical guidance on delivering culturally and linguistically appropriate services to health organizations and health care organizations (HCOs), the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Minority Health (OMH) developed the National Standards for Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services in Health and Health Care (National CLAS Standards). RAND was awarded a contract by HHS OMH to develop the long-term evaluation framework for the National CLAS Standards.
