Instructions for Meeting the General Education Provisions Act (GEPA) Section 427
Requirements

All applicants must include information in their applications to


address this provision in order to receive funding under this program.

Section 427 requires each applicant to include in its application a


description of the steps the applicant proposes to take to ensure
equitable access to, and participation in, its federally-assisted

This section allows applicants discretion in developing the required


description. The statute highlights six barriers that can impede
equitable access or participation that you may address: gender, race,
national origin, color, disability, or age.

A general statement of an applicant’s nondiscriminatory hiring policy


is not sufficient to meet this requirement. Applicants must identify
potential barriers and explain steps they will take to overcome these
barriers.

Applicants are required to address this provision by attaching a


statement (not to exceed three pages) to the ED GEPA427 form that is
included in the electronic application package in Grants.gov.
