3500. NONDISCRIMINATION ON THE BASIS OF RACE, COLOR, AND NATIONAL ORIGIN 
IN PROGRAMS AND ACTIVITIES RECEIVING FEDERAL FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant

Legal Authority: 42 USC 2000d to 2000d-7

CFR Citation: 45 CFR 1110.1 to 1110.13

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: The Institute of Museum and Library Services proposes to make 
amendments to its regulations implementing title VI of the Civil Rights 
Act of 1964 (title VI). This statute prohibits discrimination on the 
basis of race, color, and national origin in programs or activities 
that receive Federal financial assistance. In 1988, the Civil Rights 
Restoration Act (CRRA) added definitions of ``program or activity'' and 
``program'' to title VI. The added definitions were designed to clarify 
the broad scope of coverage of recipients' programs or activities under 
these statutes. The promulgation of this proposed regulation explicitly 
incorporates the CRRA's definition of ``program or activity'' and 
``program'' into the Institute's title VI regulations. The Institute's 
proposed regulation will be published as part of a joint notice of 
proposed rulemaking involving up to 24 Federal agencies.
