Special Emphasis Programs - Maine

Special Emphasis activities and support are an integral part of the Civil Rights Program at the Natural Resources Conservation Service.  Within their respective programs, Special Emphasis Program Managers assist all NRCS employees to ensure that equal opportunity is present in all aspects of NRCS programs and services.  This includes assisting the State Conservationist to provide leadership to identify under-representation and ensure positive actions are being taken to address any such problem areas.  Special Emphasis Program Managers (SEPMs) work with the State Conservationist to provide advice and assistance to management officials in order to help them meet civil rights program goals and objectives.  They also work to ensure effective communications among all persons and areas dealing with, or affected by, Agency civil rights responsibilities.
