Overview of Agency-Specific Materials
Over 28 Federal agencies have statutes, regulations, and/or guidance
that impose civil rights obligations upon recipients of Federal financial assistance from
these agencies. Below is information on these statutes, regulations, and/or
guidance, classified by specific agencies.
Please note that coordination of grant-related nondiscrimination
provisions prohibiting discrimination on the basis of disability has been assigned to the Disability Rights Section, Civil Rights
Division, Department of Justice. Coordination of the Age Discrimination Act of
1975, which prohibits age discrimination by recipients of Federal financial assistance is
the responsibility of the U.S. Department of
Health and Human Services. Consequently, the best information on these subjects
can be obtained from those entities. To avoid the possibility of posting outdated
information and since it is outside the scope of our assigned responsibilities in any
event, we will not post information relating to age and disability discrimination here.
These agency materials constitute a work in progress and, while we
are listing those laws and regulations of which we are aware, there may be others not yet
