Compliance Training for Title VI

OnDemand Webinar (59 minutes)

Learn enforcement procedures and best practices for complying with Title VI.Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 states that '[n]o person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.' Recipients and sub-recipients of federal contracts, including states, municipalities, corporations, educational institutions, and nonprofit entities, are subject to financial damages and/or injunctive relief if they discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity, or national origin, and activities as varied as school admissions, environmental pollution, and public transportation routing, are subject to Title VI. This topic will help persons responsible for administering programs for entities that receive federal assistance understand the purpose of Title VI, the activities covered by Title VI, the agency and private enforcement procedures for Title VI, and best practices for complying with Title VI. This material is critical for program managers for entities that receive federal financial assistance so they can ensure their programs meet Title VI requirements.
