About Title VI
"No person in the United States shall, on the grounds 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 Civil Rights Restoration Act of 1987, broadened the scope of Title VI coverage by expanding the definition of terms "programs or activities" to include all programs or activities of Federal Aid recipients, sub-recipients, and contractors/consultants, whether such programs and activities arc federally assisted or not (Public Law 100259 [8.557] March 22, 1988.)
Any person who believes his/her Title VI protection has been violated, may file a complaint with the City of Bainbridge Island.
