Title VI ensures no person shall be excluded from participation in, or is denied the benefits of, or is subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance from the Department of Transportation on the grounds of race, color, age, sex, disability or national origin.

Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act says, ”No person in the United States shall, on the grounds of race, color or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefit of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.” 42 U.S.C.§2000d


To ensure the broad, institution wide application of Title VI and other civil rights statutes Congress passed The Civil Rights Restoration Act of 1987. This act clarifies the definition of “programs and activities” covered by the nondiscrimination provisions of civil rights statutes. The revised definition states that discrimination is prohibited throughout an entire agency or institution, if any part of that agency or institution receives Federal financial assistance. Examples: (1)(A) a department, agency, special purpose district, or other instrumentality of a state or local government; or (B) the entity of such state or local government that distributes such assistance and each such department or agency (and each other state or local government entity) to which the assistance is extended, in the case of assistance to a state or local government;

(2)(A) a college, university, or other postsecondary institution, or a public system of education; or system of vocational education, or other school system.

Title VI applies to discrimination throughout an agency, not just to actions involving the federally assisted program. Therefore, if an agency receives any federal financial assistance for any program or activity the entire agency is required to comply with Title VI, not just that particular program. Example: The Harriet Tubman Express program receives money from HUD, the agency /division that Harriet Tubman Express programs are under ( Health Services) must also be in compliance with Title VI rules and regulations.

We need to continue to fight to strengthen our economy, to protect our environment, to protect women’s rights.

Who Must Comply?

  • State and local government: Agency distributing federal assistance or entity distributing federal assistance to the state or local government entity.
  • Higher education: college, university, or other post-secondary institution
  • Local education agency or system of vocational education, or other school system
  • An entire corporation, partnership, or other private organization, or an entire sole proprietorship
  • The entire plant or private corporation or other organization which is a geographically separate facility to which federal financial assistance is extended.

Title VI is a mechanism that directs the federal financial assistance, which drives or promotes economic development.
