Consistent with its mission of managing water and water-related resources, Reclamation is committed to serving diverse populations through its Federally Conducted and Federally Assisted Programs.  In serving the community, it is Reclamation’s responsibility to ensure that all programs, activities, and services within each program are operated in a discrimination free manner.  This means that no person will be discriminated against based on their race, color, national origin, age or disability.  Additionally, discrimination on the basis of sex is strictly prohibited in any Federally Assisted education program or activity.

The Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) is involved with many programs and activities that serve the public.  Many of the programs are provided directly by Reclamation to beneficiaries, while other programs are provided to beneficiaries by other parties, such as state or local government or private parties with financial or non-financial support from Reclamation.  Those programs provided directly by Reclamation are Federally Conducted, while those programs receiving Reclamation support and operated by partners are Federally Assisted.
