Title VI Training
- December 15, 2020–December 16, 2020
- 9:00 am–12:15 pm
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).
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.

Intended Audience: New Jersey Department of Transportation, Metropolitan Planning Organizations, municipal and county employees.
