Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 is the Federal Law that protects individuals and groups from discrimination on the basis of their race, color, and national origin in programs and activities that receive Federal financial assistance. However, USDOT’s reference to Title VI includes other Civil Rights provisions of Federal statutes and related authorities to the extent that they prohibit discrimination in programs and activities receiving Federal financial assistance.

The Capitol Region Council of Governments (CRCOG) is committed to ensuring that no person is excluded from participation, denied benefits, or otherwise subjected to discrimination under any CRCOG program or activity, on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability.

CRCOG as a recipient and sub-recipient of federal financial assistance will ensure full compliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, and related statutes and regulations in all CRCOG programs and activities.

Any person who believes that he or she has been subjected to discrimination or retaliation by CRCOG on the basis of their race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability may file a Title VI complaint. Complaints maybe filed directly to CRCOG or to the Federal Funding agency.

Complaints must be filed in writing and signed by the complainant or a representative and should include the complainants name, address, and telephone number or other means by which the complainant can be contacted. Complaints must be filed within 180 days of the date of the alleged discriminatory act.
