Title VI Procedures & Forms

TITLE VI PROCEDURES & FORMS

Adopted by the Transportation Policy Committee on July 1, 2021

As a recipient of federal financial assistance and under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and related Title VI statutes, The Corpus Christi MPO ensures that no person shall, on the grounds of race, religion, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or otherwise be subjected to discrimination under any agency programs or activities. All programs funded in whole or in part from federal financial assistance are subject to Title VI requirements. The Civil Rights Restoration Act of 1987 extended this to all programs within an agency that receives federal assistance regardless of the funding source for individual programs.

HOW TO FILE A TITLE VI COMPLAINT

Individuals or groups, who have experienced discrimination on the basis of national origin, including the inability to speak or understand English, may file a complaint. Further details are provided in the Limited English Proficiency (LEP), pages 37-42, of the 2021 Corpus Christi MPO Program for Addressing Discrimination (PAD) and the Title VI Procedures & Forms provided below.
