STATE RIN: 1400-AF66 Publication ID: Fall 2023 
Title: Nondiscrimination in Foreign Assistance 

The Foreign Assistance Act of 1961 (FAA) and other statutes authorize the U.S. Department of State (Department) to provide foreign assistance that seeks to protect and promote U.S. security, prosperity, and democratic values and shape an international environment to improve the lives of people around the world. To implement State’s expectation of nondiscrimination against beneficiaries of State-funded foreign assistance activities, State is proposing to add a new award term in 2 CFR part 602 to include an award term entitled Nondiscrimination in Foreign Assistance. The proposed award term expressly states that recipients and subrecipients receiving Department-funded foreign assistance funds must not discriminate on specified bases against end users of supplies or services (also referred to in this rule as beneficiaries and potential beneficiaries) or in certain employment decisions except where target populations are specified in the relevant Federal award.
