Federal Coordination and Compliance Section


The Federal Coordination and Compliance Section (FCS)  implements Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and related authorities that prohibit discrimination by recipients of federal funds on the basis of race, national origin (including language access), sex (including sexual orientation and gender identity), and other bases.  The Section plays a central role in enforcement, regulation, inter-agency coordination and oversight, and technical assistance. 

Additionally, FCS is responsible, under Executive Order 12250, for ensuring consistent and effective enforcement and implementation of Title VI and related federal funding statutes across more than two dozen agencies.  As a result, FCS often provides legal counsel, training, and review related to agency enforcement, regulatory, and sub-regulatory action.  FCS also works to implement various other Executive Orders, including Executive Order 13166, which requires agencies to ensure access to federal and federally funded programs for individuals who are limited English proficient.
