Your Rights Under Title VI
Civil Rights Act of 1964
Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act requires 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.”
Title VI covers all agencies receiving federal funds. Title VI applies to discrimination throughout an agency, not just actions involving federally assisted programs.
