DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE


Nondiscrimination on the Basis of Sex in Education Programs or
Activities Receiving Federal Financial Assistance


AGENCY: Department of Justice (``DOJ'').

ACTION: Notice of Department of Justice Financial Assistance Subject to
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, as amended.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: In accordance with Subpart F of the final common rule for the
enforcement of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, as amended
(``Title IX''), this notice lists federal financial assistance
administered by the U.S. DOJ that is covered by Title IX. Title IX
prohibits recipients of federal financial assistance from
discriminating on the basis of sex in education programs or activities.
Subpart F of the Title IX common rule requires each federal agency that
awards federal financial assistance to publish in the Federal Register
a notice of the federal financial assistance covered by the Title IX
regulations within sixty (60) days after the effective date of the
final common rule. The final common rule for the enforcement of Title
IX was published in the Federal Register by twenty-one (21) federal
agencies, including DOJ, on August 30, 2000 (65 FR 52857-52895). DOJ's
portion of the final common rule will be codified at 28 CFR Part 54.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title IX prohibits recipients of federal
financial assistance from discriminating on the basis of sex in
educational programs or activities. Specifically, the statute states
that ``[n]o person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be
excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be
subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity
receiving Federal financial assistance,'' with specific exceptions for
various entities, programs, and activities. 20 U.S.C. 1681(a). Title IX
and the Title IX common rule prohibit discrimination on the basis of
sex in the operation of, and the provision or denial of benefits by,
education programs or activities conducted not only by educational
institutions but by other entities as well, including, for example, law
enforcement agencies, departments of corrections, and for profit and
nonprofit organizations.

List of Federal Financial Assistance Administered by the Department
of Justice to Which Title IX Applies


Note: All recipients of federal financial assistance from DOJ
are subject to Title IX, but Title IX's anti-discrimination
prohibitions are limited to the educational components of the
recipient's program or activity, if any.

Failure to list a type of federal assistance below shall not mean,
if Title IX is otherwise applicable, that a program or activity is not
covered by Title IX.
