No person shall on the ground of sex be excluded from participation
in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under
any project receiving Federal grant assistance under this chapter,
including any supplemental grant made under this chapter. This provision
will be enforced through agency provisions and rules similar to those

cut off any other legal remedies available to a discriminatee.
