Title VI Compliance

Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 applies to all recipients and sub-recipients of Federal financial assistance. Federal financial assistance includes; grants, training, use of equipment, surplus property, and other assistance. Recipients of federal funds range from state and local agencies, to nonprofit agencies and other organizations. If federal funds are passed from one recipient to a sub-recipient, the sub-recipient is required to comply with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

As a sub-recipient of Federal financial assistance, the requirements of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 are applicable to all of the operations of the Department of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (DIDD) and to any entity to which department funded financial assistance is extended. (United States Code, § 2000d-4a)
