Recipients and programs and activities conducted by recipients that receive federal financial assistance must be in compliance with Title IX regulations. This adjudication scheme applies to enforcement of these regulations by NARA on recipients of grants made by NARA's affiliate, the National Historical Publications & Records Commission (NHPRC).
The agency may only terminate financial assistance for noncompliance with Title IX after the noncompliant recipient has had an opportunity for a formal hearing. The hearings are conducted by either an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) or the head of NARA in compliance with sections 5 through 8 of the APA (5 USC 554-557). See 36 CFR 1211.620.
