Title VI

Title VI and Environmental Justice in the transportation planning process stem from Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act (42 U.S.C. 2000d-1), the President's Executive Order on Environmental Justice, the related US DOT Order, and the FHWA Order.  Title VI states 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." Title VI bars intentional discrimination as well as disparate impact discrimination (i.e., a neutral policy or practice that has a disparate impact on protected groups).
