Title VI Civil Rights

Public Works Engineering Title VI Policy

The City of Eugene is committed to fairness and equity in representation, opportunity, and access, and dedicated to removing barriers that might hinder the quality of service provided to our customers. As a recipient of federal financial assistance, Public Works Engineering intends to comply with nondiscrimination laws and regulations, including Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and subsequent federal nondiscrimination directives.

Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and its related statutes and regulations provides that no person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color, national origin, limited English proficiency, sex, income, age, or disability be excluded from participation in, be denied benefits of, or otherwise be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance. 

Public Works Engineering adopted a Title VI Non-Discrimination Plan in January 2018 and reviews the plan annually to evaluate successes and updates to the plan:
