Nondiscrimination Statement

All materials developed, adapted, or printed with SNAP-Ed funds that are shared in public (including both print and non-print forms of communication) must include the shortened USDA nondiscrimination statement in a reasonably sized font:

This institution is an equal opportunity provider.


Failure to properly use the USDA nondiscrimination statement could result in items not being eligible for reimbursement.

The full nondiscrimination statement is rarely, if ever required for SNAP-Ed. It is only necessary to include the full nondiscrimination statement if SNAP or other FNS program eligibility or application information is provided.
