Some Questions and Answers.
The Training Goes into these Questions in Greater Depth.
Can a Federal grant
recipient be sued by an individual who claims that there is an adverse
impact in the delivery of grant services?
Probably not in most
situations. However, the Federal agency that gave the grant can
investigate such a complaint and may require corrective action, where
appropriate. The training explains why this is, when an
individual might be able to bring a court action, and just what the
Federal agency can do.
Does the Attorney prepare an
annual report card on how well
Federal agencies are doing in enforcing prohibitions against
discrimination applicable to their grantees.
12250 requires such a report card or annual report be prepared by the
Attorney General for the President. The training explains what
this report card is
supposed to contain, how it is prepared, and how you might obtain a
copy of it.
Are contractors and
subcontractors hired by recipients to
carry out Federally assisted programs covered by
prohibitions against discrimination applicable to recipients of Federal
grants concerning discrimination in the provision of services?
are not usually covered by
related nondiscrimination statutes. The may be covered by
Title VII and Executive Order 11246 administered by the Office of
Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) for employment
discrimination. They may also be contractual provisions
forbidding discrimination. But in general in the area of service
discrimination, there is no statutory provision prohibiting
discrimination by a contractor carrying out a Federally assisted
training explains when they might be covered. It also explains
the obligations of recipients when their contractors and subcontractors
discriminate in the provision of services.
