TITLE VI COMPLIANCE
What Is Title VI?
- Title VI, 42 U.S.C., * Section 2000d et seq., was enacted as part of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Title VI-related statutes and regulations provide that no person shall on the ground of race, color, national origin, sex, English proficiency, or disabilities be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity.
Why Is Title VI Important?
- Title VI ensures that public services, including transportation, are provided in an equitable and nondiscriminatory manner.
- Title VI provides opportunities for public participation in decision-making without regard to race, color, or national origin, including populations with Limited English Proficiency (LEP).
Please Fill Out a Survey
MDTA strives to involve all groups relevant to its project in its public involvement activities. Please fill out and submit a Demographic Information Survey (PDF Download) to assist MDTA in planning outreach to communities during the course of the project.
