Title VI Information
The DTA is required to have a Title VI program. This program details how the DTA meets the objectives of this law. The DTA pledges that everyone will have access to all our programs, services and benefits without regard to race, color, national origin, sex, age, disability or socioeconomic status.
The DTA will not tolerate discrimination by its employees or by those who receive federal funds from the DTA. The DTA prohibits all discriminatory practices that may result in an individual:
Being denied any service, financial aid or benefit provided under a program to which he or she may be otherwise entitled,
Being held to different standards or requirements for participation
Experiencing segregation or separate treatment in any part of a program
Being subject to distinctions in quality, quantity or manner in which a benefit is provided
Experiencing discrimination in any activities conducted in a DTA facility built in whole or part with Federal funds.
Prevent the denial of reduction in or significant delay in the receipt of benefits by minority and low income populations.
The DTA’s program is posted on the website at www.duluthtransit.com and available from Jim Heilig at the DTA. A hearing will be held on Tuesday November 30, 2010 at 1:30 pm at the DTA to the review the program. All interested persons are encouraged to attend or submit comments on the program.
Individuals or organizations who believe they have been denied benefits of, excluded from participation in, or subject to descrimination on the grounds of race, color, or national origin by the DTA can file an administrative complaint with the Federal Transit Administration's Office of Civil Rights under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
