Civil Rights Compliance Program

NIFA’s Office of Equal Opportunity and Civil Rights is responsible for enforcing several civil rights laws which, together, prohibit discrimination based on race, color, and national origin.

Civil Rights Compliance Reviews

Civil rights compliance reviews are a tool to determine how benefits and services are delivered by NIFA-funded programs and activities. The collaborative reviews provide technical assistance and strategies to improve access, equal opportunity, and program delivery to NIFA funding recipients. Onsite compliance reviews are conducted annually on a rotational basis for recipients in the U.S. and its territories.
