DRAFT TITLE VI PROGRAM for Public Review


RELEASE TITLE VI PLAN FOR PUBLIC REVIEW AND COMMENT 

Background 

The Federal Transit Agency (FTA) requires that all direct and primary recipients document their compliance with Department of Transportation’s Title VI regulations. Recipients must submit a Title VI Program to their FTA regional civil rights officer once every three years or as otherwise directed by FTA. Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 states, “No person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance”.

FTA has provided guidance as to what must be included in a complete Title VI Program which includes a Public Participation Plan, Limited English Proficiency program, and an environmental justice element as laid out in Executive Orders 12898 and 13166. The Title VI Program must be approved by the City Council.

Public Review
The City’s Draft Title VI Program will be available for public review for a period of 30 days prior to consideration for approval at the April 27, 2017 City Council meeting. Comments may be directed to the City’s General Services Department by email at generalservices@citrusheights.net, by phone at 916-727-4770 or in person during business hours (Monday-Friday 8 AM to 5 PM) at Citrus Heights City Hall, 6360 Fountain Square Drive, Citrus Heights, CA 95621.
