Cal OES is responsible for the administration of federal funds to local and regional entities. Recipients and subrecipients of Federal Funds are required to adhere to EEO Compliance Requirements. The Cal OES EEO Office is responsible for monitoring and partnering with subrecipients to ensure they are compliant with all EEO requirements. As a condition for receiving funding from the U.S. Department of Justice Office of Justice Programs (OJP), recipients and subrecipients must comply with applicable federal Civil Rights laws.

Subrecipients are required to develop an EEOP if they meet all of the following criteria:

  • The subrecipient is a state or local government agency or a business; AND
  • The subrecipient has 50 or more employees; AND
  • The subrecipient has received a single award of $25,000 or more.

 

Any subrecipient who meets the above criteria and receives a single award of $500,000 or more must send the EEOP to the U.S. Office for Civil Rights for review and approval.

 

Subrecipients who meet the following criteria are exempt from developing an EEOP:

  • The subrecipient is a nonprofit, Indian Tribe, Medical or Educational Institution;
  • The subrecipient is a state or local government or private entity with less than 50 employees;
  • The subrecipient is a state or local government or private entity that receives less than $25,000

Subrecipients who meet the above criteria are required to complete section A of the Certification Form and submit it to the Office of Civil Rights.

 

Subrecipients should submit EEOPs and Certification Forms to the Office for Civil Rights within 60 day of the grant award date.
