The Corpus Christi Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), as a recipient of federal financial assistance and under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and related statutes, ensures that no person shall, on the grounds of race, religion, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or otherwise be subjected to discrimination under any agency programs or activities. These prohibitions extend from the MPO, as a direct recipient of federal financial assistance, to its sub-recipients (e.g., contractors, consultants, local governments, colleges, universities, etc). All programs funded in whole or in part from federal financial assistance are subject to Title VI requirements. The Civil Rights Restoration Act of 1987 extended this to all programs within an agency that receives federal assistance regardless of the funding source for individual programs.
Complaints of alleged discrimination and inquiries regarding the MPO’s non-discrimination policies may be directed to Elena J. Buentello, AICP, Transportation Planner & Title VI Coordinator at (361) 884-0687 x103 or email: email@example.com
