• Non-Discrimination Statement & USDA Complaint Process

    In accordance with federal civil rights law and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) civil rights
    regulations and policies, the USDA, its agencies, offices and employees, and institutions
    participating in or administering USDA programs (including the district), are prohibited from
    discriminating based on race, color, national origin, sex, disability, age or reprisal or retaliation for
    prior civil rights activity in any program or activity conducted or funded by the USDA.


    Persons with disabilities who require alternative means of communication for program information
    (e.g. Braille, large print, audiotape, American Sign Language, etc.) should contact the agency (state
    or local) where they applied for benefits. Individuals who are deaf, hard of hearing or have speech
    disabilities may contact the USDA through the Federal Relay Service at 800-877-8339.


    Additionally, program information may be made available in languages other than English.
