Are program participants required to provide me with information about their race, ethnicity, and gender?

Program participants are not required to provide you with information about their race, ethnicity, or gender. If participants won’t voluntary provide this information you may NOT deny service.

Although, we are required to collect and report data on the race, ethnicity and gender of our program participants and the direct contacts we make; we can’t require the participants to provide the information.
