Because of its popularity, this recurring Webinar provides an informative overview of how to comply with the nondiscrimination and equal opportunity provisions of federal civil rights laws that apply to the administration, oversight, and delivery process for federally assisted programs and activities.

We will touch on a variety of compliance-related issues such as how far these laws extend, what is required for compliance (including a discussion of reasonable accommodation, environmental justice, and Limited English Proficiency), the concepts of assurances and taglines, differences between program complaints and discrimination complaints, harassment and hostile environment, and data collection.
