Civil Rights

The Office of Civil Rights (OCR) enforces federal civil rights laws that prohibit discrimination against members of the public by recipients of EPA funds, and protects employees and applicants for employment from discrimination. OCR also provides policy guidance and technical assistance to program offices within EPA on civil rights compliance and equal employment opportunity.
