What is Title VI?

Title VI, 42 U.S.C. 2000d et seq., was enacted as part of the landmark

Civil Rights Act of 1964.  It prohibits discrimination on the basis of race,

color, and national origin in programs and activities receiving federal

financial assistance. As President John F. Kennedy said in 1963:

        "Simple justice requires that public funds, to which all taxpayers of all races

 [colors, and national origins] contribute, not be spent in any fashion which encourages,

entrenches, subsidizes or results in racial [color or national origin] discrimination."

 


What is the role of the YVCOG in Title VI?

The YVCOG Transportation staff conducts transportation planning activities

for the Yakima Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) and Yakima Valley

Regional Transportation Planning Organization (RTPO). As such the YVCOG

is responsible for coordinating the overall administration of the Title VI Plan and assurances.

The Title VI Plan was prepared in accordance with all parts of The Civil Rights Act of 1964.

The plan was approved by the MPO/RTPO Executive Committee on October 16, 2006.


Components of the YVCOG Title VI Plan:

The YVCOG's Title VI plan is comprised of three primary documents.

These include the primary Implementation Plan, the Update Report
