Title VI / Nondiscrimination

The 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 21 requires that all recipients of federal-aid highway funds comply with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination based on race, color, or national origin in programs and activities of any entity that receive federal assistance. Other related regulations prohibit discrimination based on sex, age, and disability. Discrimination is an action or inaction, intentional or not, through which any beneficiary, solely because of race, religion, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability has been otherwise subjected to unequal treatment or impacts.
