An Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) plan is a comprehensive document that analyzes a recipient's relevant labor market data, as well as the recipient's employment practices, to identify possible barriers to the participation of women and minorities in all levels of a recipient's workforce. Its purpose is to ensure the opportunity for full and equal participation of men and women in the workplace, regardless of race, color, or national origin.

As a recipient of Department of Justice funding, your organization may be required to submit a Certification Report or the Utilization Report portion of your plan to the Office for Civil Rights. If you are unsure of whether your organization is subject to the Civil Rights requirements of the Safe Streets Act, please refer to the FAQ How can I tell if a recipient is subject to the Safe Streets Act?

The Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Reporting System will allow you to create your organization’s account, then prepare and submit an EEO Certification Form and if required, create and submit an EEO Utilization Report. You will also be able to access your organization’s saved information in subsequent logins.
