The District of Columbia Department of Transportation (DDOT) assures that no person shall on the grounds of race, color, national origin, or gender, as provided in Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and related statutes (implementation through 23 CFR 200.9), be excluded from participation in, or be denied the benefits of, or be otherwise subjected to discrimination under any program or activity for which DDOT received federal financial assistance.
To the greatest extent allowed by law, DDOT ensures equity in its administration, programs, and policies that affect human health and the environment so as to identify and avoid disproportionately high and adverse impacts on minority and low-income populations. In addition, DDOT promotes meaningful access to services for persons with Limited English Proficiency.
DDOT further assures every effort will be made to ensure nondiscrimination in all of its programs and activities, whether those programs are federally funded or not. Furthermore, in the event that DDOT distributes Federal-aid funds to another entity, DDOT will include Title VI language in all written agreements and will monitor for compliance.
Title VI compliance is a condition of receipt for Federal funds. DDOT Administrators and the Title VI Coordinator are authorized to ensure compliance with the provisions of this policy and the law, including the requirements imposed by or pursuant to 23 CFR 200.9 and 49 CFR 21.
