Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VI) is a federal law that requires no person in the United States on the grounds of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from, be denied the benefits or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance. The Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1973 added the requirement that there be no discrimination on the basis of sex. Title VI applies to recipients and sub-recipients of federal financial assistance. The Civil Rights Restoration Act of 1987 makes clear that pursuant to Title VI, discrimination is prohibited throughout any department of a local agency that accepts Federal financial assistance.
The City of Millbrae periodically receives federal funding from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and other federal program funding. As a recipient of such federal aid, the City is required to comply with Title VI and the related Department of Transportation regulations (Title 49 CFR Part 21).
The Title VI Program and Language Assistance Plan (PDF) were developed to guide the Millbrae in its administration and management of Title VI-related activities. Please see the City of Millbrae Title VI Implementation Plan (PDF) for more information or contact the Title VI Coordinator.
Title VI requires public entities to designate at least one employee to coordinate the investigation of complaints from LEP individuals. Any person who believes they have been discriminated against based on race, color, or national origin with regard to service delivery has the right to file a complaint with the City's Title VI Coordinator within 180 days of the alleged incident.
