Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, prohibits discrimination based upon race, color, and national origin. Specifically, 42 USC 2000d states that “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.” The use of the word “person” is important as the protections afforded under Title VI apply to anyone, regardless of whether the individual is lawfully present in the United States or a citizen of a State within the United States. In addition to Title VI, there are other Nondiscrimination statutes that afford legal protection. These statutes include the following: Section 162 (a) of the Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1973 (23 USC 324) (sex), Age Discrimination Act of 1975 (age), and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973/Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990 (disability).

As a recipient of FHWA State Planning & Research (SPR) funds, the Cape Fear RPO must comply with Title VI and ensure Federal funds are not used in a discriminatory manner.  In an effort to ensure compliance, the following map uses US Census Bureau data as a means of collecting and reporting Title VI data (race, color, national origin, sex, age, disability, etc.).

Title VI complaints should be directed to Patrick Flanagan, Director of the Cape Fear RPO and its Title VI Coordinator.  Additional information about the Cape Fear RPO's Title VI program will be provided as available.
