Civil Rights & Title VI

Civil Rights
Title VI of 1964 Civil Rights Act provides that no person in the United States shall, on the grounds of race, color, nations origin, or sex be excluded from participation in, be denied benefits of, or be otherwise subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal assistance (23 CFR 200.9 and 49 CFR21).

The Civil Rights Restoration Act of 1987 broadened the scope of Title VI coverage by expanding the definition of terms “programs or activities” to include all programs and activities for Federal Aid recipients, sub-recipients, and contractors, whether such programs and activities are federally assisted or not (Public Law 10-259 {S.557} March 22, 1988).
