Title VI Training

  • December 15, 2020December 16, 2020
  • 9:00 am–12:15 pm
Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin in any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance. Nondiscrimination provisions apply to all programs and activities of Federal-aid recipients and contractors regardless of their funding source. As a condition of receiving Federal financial assistance, the New Jersey Department of Transportation is responsible for assuring nondiscrimination in its programs and activities and must oversee and ensure nondiscrimination on the part of its sub-recipients and contractors.

The Environmental Justice (EJ) Executive Order 12898 amplifies Title VI by identifying and addressing, as appropriate, disproportionately high and adverse human health or environmental effects of federal-aid projects on minority populations and low-income populations. The Limited English Proficiency Executive Order 13166 is also enforced under Title VI, as it further clarifies the Title VI responsibility of National Origin discrimination and requires Federal-aid recipients to take steps to ensure meaningful access to their programs, services and information by people with Limited English Proficiency (LEP).

Objective 

As a recipient of Federal funds, NJDOT is required to implement a sound and viable Title VI Nondiscrimination Program to include training of in-house staff and sub-recipients.  The goal of this Title VI Training is to provide NJDOT staff and sub-recipients (i.e., municipalities, counties, and MPOs) with a background on Title VI, Environmental Justice, and LEP and convey our collective responsibility under the Title VI program to ensure that nondiscrimination principles and provisions are incorporated in all programs, plans and activities.

This will be 2-day (3 hours each session) program.  Participants will receive a certificate of attendance if they attend the full session on both days.  Please sign in using your full name to receive credit.
