“This is another important step in USDA’s effort to make our programs accessible and inclusive for everyone who wants to participate in agriculture or who stands to benefit from our vast portfolio of programs, which range from farm lending to rural housing support to nutrition security initiatives and more,” said Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. “President Biden has been clear: there is no room in our democracy for discrimination or bias, and as the People’s Department we will continue to do our part to root out hate.”

USDA fact sheet (PDF, 165 KB) was released that describes the ways Title VI protections cover individuals who are or are perceived to be Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Sikh, Hindu, Buddhist, or of another religious group.
