Title VI Technical Assistance & Support
Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, although a long-standing protection for individuals and a requirement for transit providers, is now receiving more attention. All agencies and organizations receiving FTA funds are required to develop and implement a Title VI Program compliant with October 2012 regulatory changes.
Since 2013, AMMA assisted many agencies with fewer than 50 vehicles in developing and implementing their Title VI programs. As part of Caltrans’ RTAP (Rural Transportation Assistance Program), AMMA also trained agencies across California and has constructed a program model for small agencies to craft their own Title VI Programs. AMMA is currently supporting transit properties in “embracing” their Title VI program, to aid in preparing Title VI Program updates and in ongoing compliance with Title VI requirements for public transit.
