The EO requires all Federal agencies “to pursue a comprehensive approach to advancing equity for all including people of color and other people who have been historically underserved, marginalized, and adversely affected by persistent poverty and inequality.”
Our programs touch the lives of nearly every American including people who face barriers – providing income security for the diverse populations we serve. This includes:
- People with disabilities.
- People who are widowed.
- Their families.
