Nonprofit Grantees – Are They Considered Federal Contractors?

Anonymous - Aug 06, 2021
Back to Ask the Experts

According to my research, federal contractors and subcontractors are required to have a WRITTEN Affirmative Action Plan on file if they are receiving in excess of $50,000 in contracts (or subcontracts) annually and this written plan must be provided to OFCCP within 30 days of request.

Are nonprofit organizations (grantees) who are receiving in excess of $50,000 in federal GRANTS (either directly or indirectly) annually also required to have a WRITTEN Affirmative Action Plan? In other words, are they considered to be federal contractors or subcontractors by way of receiving federal grant funds?
