Title VI of the Civil Rights Act

Introduction
Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VI), as amended, prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin in programs and activities receiving Federal financial assistance. The Civil Rights Restoration Act of 1987 clarified and restored the intent of Title VI by specifying that recipients of Federal funds must comply with civil rights in all areas, not just in the particular program or activity that received Federal funding. As a recipient of Federal aid from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT), Perry County's responsibilities are to have, adhere to, and update annually, a Title VI Implementation Plan, to have a Title VI Coordinator, and to have a complaint procedure for discrimination against qualified individuals.

Implementation Plan & Policy
Perry County values each individual's civil rights and intends to provide equal opportunity and equitable service for the citizens of this county. Perry County will conform to Title VI and all related statutes, regulations, and directives, which provide that no person shall be excluded from participation in, denied benefits of, or subject to discrimination on the grounds of race, color, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, national origin, religion, income status, or limited English proficiency. Perry County further assures every effort will be made to ensure nondiscrimination in all of its programs and activities, regardless of whether those programs and activities are federally funded.
