Federal Protection Against National Origin Discrimination
OSC's Public Education Grant Program
OSC regrets to announce that its long-running public education grant program has been suspended for Fiscal Year 2011 based on a lack of discretionary funds. Furthermore, it is unknown at present if discretionary funds will be available for a grant cycle during Fiscal Year 2012. Information on a possible resumption of the OSC public education grant program will be available on OSC’s website in the future.
Since 1987, the annual public education grant program has been a major component of OSC’s mandate to educate the public about the anti-discrimination provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). In the absence of a grant program, OSC remains committed to informing employersworkers and their advocates about workplace protections from citizenship/immigration status discrimination, national origin discrimination, discriminatory practices during employment eligibility verification, and retaliation. Organizations that serve workers and employers are encouraged to contact OSC in order to explore informal partnerships designed to further OSC’s public education mission. (Updated May 11, 2011).
