The purpose of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 is to prohibit programs that receive federal funds from discriminating against participants on the basis of race, color or national origin.
Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as codified in 42 U.S.C. 2000d, states: 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.
The intent of the law is to ensure that all persons, regardless of their race, color or national origin, are allowed to participate in these federally funded programs. To ensure that the department meets its compliance responsibility, procedures have been established to provide for monitoring of Title VI compliance, activities and complaint processing in programs, directly or indirectly responsible to the department (i.e., the department‚Äôs own programs, contracted services, and departmentally-funded community service organizations, all of which receive federal/state funding in whole or in part).
At the July 20, 2011 Board of Commission meeting the Title VI Non-Discrimination Policy (600-71) was approve.¬† The purpose of this policy is to articulate Fulton County‚Äôs commitment to fully comply with all Non-Discrimination provisions pursuant to Title VI of the Civil rights Act of 1964.
