37.75.102    CIVIL RIGHTS

(1) The CACFP is a federal program and all participants must comply with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The full description of participant responsibilities is set forth in the civil rights section of the CACFP Manual, and is adopted and incorporated by this reference. A copy of the CACFP Manual's civil rights section is available from the Department of Public Health and Human Services, Human and Community Services Division, 111 N. Jackson, P.O. Box 202925, Helena, MT 59620-2925.

(2) The federal CACFP requires the inclusion of the USDA nondiscrimination and equal opportunity statements as set forth in (2)(a) to be used in all informational materials disseminated to the public.

(a) "In accordance with federal law and U.S. Department of Agriculture policy, this institution is prohibited from discriminating on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability.

To file a complaint of discrimination, write USDA, Director, Office of Civil Rights, Room 326-W, Whitten Building, 1400 Independence Avenue SW, Washington, DC 20250-9410, or call (202) 720-5964 (voice and TDD). USDA is an equal opportunity provider and employer."

(3) If the material is too small to permit the full statement to be included (e.g., brochures, coupons, electronic benefit cards, flyers, and other media of less than a page) the material must, at a minimum, include USDA's short nondiscrimination statement, as follows: "THIS INSTITUTION IS AN EQUAL OPPORTUNITY PROVIDER AND EMPLOYER."
