The purpose of the New Mexico NRCS Civil Rights web page is to assist the State Conservationist, the New Mexico Civil Rights Committee, and the Special Emphasis Program Managers to deliver information about equal opportunity, civil rights, and special emphasis issues and events. This site is a convenient starting point to obtain information pertaining to equal opportunity, civil rights, or special emphasis. This website provides access to agency and departmental civil rights information as well as information specific to New Mexico.
It is the policy of NRCS that all federally assisted and federally conducted programs will be administered in accordance with requirements of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Education Amendment of 1972, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1975, the Equal Opportunity Act, Executive Orders, U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) regulations enforcing nondiscrimination requirements, and Departmental rules and regulations. Compliance ensures access in all aspects of delivery of program benefits and service to the public without regard to race, color, national origin, gender, religion, age, disability, political beliefs, sexual orientation, marital or family status.
