Title VI Plan

What is Title VI?

Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and related statutes states that each Federal agency is required to ensure that no person is excluded from participation in, denied the benefit of, or subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, sex, disability, or religion. The Civil Rights Restoration Act of 1987 clarified the intent of Title VI to include all program and activities of Federal-aid recipients, sub-recipients, and contractors whether those programs and activities are federally funded or not.

As the agency responsible for coordinating the transportation planning process, the L-DC MPO must make sure that all segments of the population have been included in the planning process. The impact of proposed transportation investments on underserved and underrepresented population groups must be part of the evaluation process.
