2017-2020 Title VI Program

Appendices

Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin in programs and activities receiving Federal financial assistance. Specifically, Title VI provides that “no 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” (42 U.S.C. Section 2000d).

HRT is committed to a program of non-discrimination in the conduct of its business and in the delivery of equitable and accessible transportation services. The responsibility for day-to-day operations of the Title VI program, including the investigation of Title VI complaints, has been assigned to the Title VI Compliance Officer. However, all HRT employees share in the responsibility for implementing this program.
