Civil Rights – Title VI & Other Non-Discrimination Policies
The Rockingham Planning Commission Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) operates its programs, services and activities in compliance with federal nondiscrimination laws including Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VI), the Civil Rights Restoration Act of 1987, and related statutes and regulations. Title VI prohibits discrimination in federally assisted programs and requires that no person in the United States of America shall, on the grounds of race, color, or national origin (including limited English proficiency), be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be otherwise subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal assistance. Related federal nondiscrimination laws administrated by the Federal Highway Administration, the Federal Transit Administration, or both prohibit discrimination on the basis of age, sex, and disability. These protected categories are contemplated within the Rockingham Region MPO’s Title VI Programs consistent with federal interpretation and administration. Additionally, the Rockingham Region MPO provides meaningful access to its programs, services, and activities to individuals with limited English proficiency, in compliance with US Department of Transportation policy and guidance on federal Executive Order 13166.
The MPO operates without regard to race, color, national origin, sex, age, creed, disability or income status. MPO meetings are held in accessible locations, and reasonable accommodations are made for individuals with disabilities upon request within a reasonable advance notice period (usually two weeks or 10 business days). If you would like accessibility or language accommodation for any RPC MPO meeting, please contact the RPC Office Administrator at 603-778-0885, extension 101 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you feel you have been discriminated against based on your race, color, national origin, sex, age, creed, disability or income status, you may file a complaint following the RPC MPO Title VI Complaint Form.
