Title Vi 2020-2023 Program
Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin in programs and activities receiving Federal financial assistance. Specifically, Title VI provides that “no person in the United States shall, on the ground 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” (42 U.S.C. Section 2000d).
City of Jackson (JTRAN) is committed to a program of non-discrimination in the conduct of its business and in the delivery of equitable and accessible transportation services. The responsibility for day-to-day operations of the Title VI program, including the investigation of Title VI complaints, has been assigned to the Title VI Coordinator. However, all City of Jackson (JTRAN) employees share in the responsibility for implementing this program.
Within 180 days of the alleged discrimination, the complainant may be submitted via email or U.S. mail by sending the attached City of Jackson (JTRAN) Title VI Complaint Form. A complainant may file a complaint at any time with City of Jackson (JTRAN) and/or directly with the Federal Transit Administration by filing a complaint with the Office of Civil Rights, Attention: Title VI Program Coordinator, East Building, 5th Floor-TCR, 1200 New Jersey Ave., SE, Washington, DC 20590.
Complaints must state, as fully as possible, the facts and circumstances surrounding the alleged discrimination. In cases where the complainant is unable or incapable of providing a written statement but wishes City of Jackson (JTRAN) to investigate alleged discrimination, the Title VI Coordinator will arrange for an interview to enable a verbal complaint of discrimination. If necessary, the interviewer will assist the person in converting verbal complaints to writing. The complainant or the representative completing the form must sign complaint before action is taken.
