Title VI Requirements for Rural Transit Webinar
July 29, 2015 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pmFree
With various activities and responsibilities, rural transit providers have a unique role in the transit world. To ensure rural providers understand their Title VI responsibilities, this National RTAP 101 Webinar will clarify the different Title VI Circular (PDF) requirements by going beyond the mere applicable requirements. It will also address “best practices” and provide a Q&A to help providers seamlessly develop and implement a robust Title VI Program.
Title VI is part of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This law prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, and national origin in programs and activities receiving federal financial assistance. It applies the activities and programs of both federal agencies and of recipients using federal funds to conduct programs and activities. More details on Title VI are available from the U.S. Department of Justice, here.
Though all the requirements will be discussed in relation to rural transit operation, some that will be specifically covered include:
- Public participation
- Limited English proficiency (LEP)
- Siting/locating of facilities
The webinar will occur Wednesday, July 29, 2:30-3:30 p.m. ET. Jonathan Ocana of the Federal Transit Administration will present and answer questions in a live Q&A session.
