The grantee shall post in conspicuous places, available to employees and applicants for employment, notices setting forth the provisions of this nondiscrimination clause. The grantee shall state that all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. The grantee shall incorporate the foregoing requirements of this paragraph in all of its contracts for program work.
