What is Title VI?

Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (42 U.S.C. 200d), related statutes and regulations provide that no person shall on the ground of race, color, national origin, sex, or disabilities be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal funds. The entire institution whether educational, private or governmental must comply with Federal civil rights laws, not just the particular programs or activities receiving the federal funds.

MDOT is committed to ensuring that projects, programs and services are performed without discrimination, under Title VI.

MDOT must under 23 CFR 200.9(b) (7) conduct Title VI reviews of cities counties, consultant contractors, suppliers, universities, colleges, planning agencies, and other recipients of Federal-aid highway funds.

You can access Part 23 CFR 200.9 from the Federal Highways Administration Web site.  It is also available as a series of PDF files from the National Archives and Records Administration.
