Filing a Discrimination Complaint Against Federal Grant Programs

Who can file a discrimination complaint?

  • Any client, customer, program participant, or employee of an organization that receives funding passed through the Washington State Department of Commerce by the federal Department of Justice (DOJ) and other federal grant programs has the right to file a discrimination complaint.
  • Any individual who feels that they have been discriminated against may file an external complaint.
