Please attach an EEO policy that specifically includes and lists sexual orientation and gender identity, and requires compliance with all other applicable federal and local EEO laws. Organizations with non-compliant EEO policies will not be considered for funding.
EEO policy guidelines must include at least the following:
1. Gender identification (an individual's internal sense of one's own gender)
2. Sexual orientation (determined by whom an individual is sexually attracted to and also has the potential for loving)
3. All other categories protected by applicable federal and local laws. We view this requirement as another tool we can use, in addition to grant making, that can help bring about social change.
