Equal Opportunity and the Law

It is against the law for a recipient of Federal financial assistance to discriminate on the following bases:

The Federal financial recipient providing services must not discriminate against customers in any of the following areas:

Recipients of federal financial assistance must take reasonable steps to ensure that communications with individuals with disabilities are as effective as communications with others. This means that, upon request and at no cost to the individual, recipients are required to provide appropriate auxiliary aids and services to qualified individuals with disabilities.
