Grantees who recieve federal funding administered by OVSJG (i.e., Byrne, Title II, VOCA, VAWA, SASP, Coverdell, RSAT) are required to abide by certain federal civil rights laws as a condition of receiving the grant award. The underlying principle is that that the revenue that people contribute to the federal government cannot be used in a discriminatory manner in federally assisted programs. The following resources will assist federal subgrantees in understanding and complying with the federal civil rights laws.
