Sec. 2540.210 What provisions exist to ensure that Corporation-supported programs
do not discriminate in the selection of participants and staff?
(a) An individual with responsibility for the operation of a project
that receives Corporation assistance must not discriminate against a
participant in, or member of the staff of, such project on the basis of
race, color, national origin, sex, age, or political affiliation of such
participant or member, or on the basis of disability, if the participant
or member is a qualified individual with a disability.
(b) Any Corporation assistance constitutes Federal financial
assistance for purposes of title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (42
U.S.C. 2000d et seq.), title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (20
U.S.C. 1681 et seq.), section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (29
U.S.C. 794), and the Age Discrimination Act of 1975 (42 U.S.C. 6101 et
seq.), and constitutes Federal financial assistance to an education
program or activity for purposes of the Education Amendments of 1972 (20

(c) An individual with responsibility for the operation of a project
that receives Corporation assistance may not discriminate on the basis
of religion against a participant in such project or a member of the

does not apply to the employment (with Corporation assistance) of any staff member of a
Corporation-supported project who was employed with the organization
operating the project on the date the Corporation grant was awarded.
