Office of Civil Rights
The goal of the Risk Management Agency (RMA) Office of Civil Rights (OCR) is to make Civil Rights an integral part of all RMA activities. OCR is committed to ensuring equal employment opportunity and equal access in all aspects of RMA programs and services without regard to race, color, national origin, religion, sex, age, marital and parental status, genetic information, political affiliation and disability (not all bases apply to all programs).
Our primary focus is to formulate, administer, and evaluate programs and activities under Title VII (prohibits employment discrimination) and Title VI (programs receiving federal financial assistance from RMA) of the Civil Rights Act.
For information regarding Civil Rights' directives, regulations, and guidelines for federally assisted programs (Title VI), please contact Iris Snowden.
To file an EEO (employment discrimination) complaint, please contact the RMA Office of Civil Rights at 202-690-3578.
