At the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), the Outreach and Compliance Coordination Program (OCCP) leads the agency's efforts to ensure fair and equitable treatment in NRC conducted and Federal financially assisted programs and activities.

OCCP provides oversight, outreach, compliance coordination; technical assistance; civil rights training; educational information and materials; monitors program activities; conducts compliance reviews; processes and investigate complaints; takes enforcement actions in response to violations; and submits reports on the agency's oversight efforts and compliance status to the applicable White House offices, Federal oversight of agencies, and NRC officials. In addition, the OCCP provides prospective applicants/recipients with guidance and direction, as illustrated by the "Civil Rights Compliance Requirements Imposed as a Condition of Award of NRC Federal Financial Assistance" provided in Section 6 of each of the agency's Federal Funding Opportunity Announcements.

The Minority Serving Institutions Program (MSIP) funds minority serving programs, activities, projects, symposiums and training for the exchange and transfer of knowledge and skills relevant to nuclear safety, security, environmental protection, or any other fields the Commission deems critical to its mission. MSIP provides assistance for minority serving programs and activities to include, but not limited to mentoring, leadership development, training, instruction, developmental learning, research and development, program evaluation, and technical assistance. MSIP also provides assistance to include direct institutional subsidies, facilities and equipment acquisition, internships, fellowships, scholarships, and tuition and housing assistance.
