Public Access Civil Rights Program / Points of Contact

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) is committed to providing equal access to programs that we fund through Federal financial assistance. Our Public Access Civil Rights Program helps us ensure that:

  • members of the public who participate in programs and activities that we fund have equal access to those programs, activities, and facilities where the programs take place; and
  • recipients of Federal financial assistance, primarily grants to State fish and wildlife agencies funded by the Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Program, do not exclude people from any program, activity or facility; deny them benefits; or otherwise discriminate against them on grounds of race, color, national origin, age, disability, or sex in educational programs.

For more information about the Public Access Civil Rights Program, read the Fish and Wildlife Service Manual Part 063

If you have specific questions about the Public Access Civil Rights Program, contact the FWS regional representative assigned to your State.
