Title VI Policy

It is the policy of the Southern New Hampshire Planning Commission (SNHPC) Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) to effectuate Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, the Civil Rights Restoration Act of 1987, and related statutes and regulations in all Federal programs and activities. Pursuant to this obligation, no person shall, on the grounds of race, color, national origin, sex, or income status be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or otherwise be subjected to discrimination in any program or activity carried out by the SNHPC. The SNHPC will also monitor and enforce statutory requirements imposed on its sub-recipients and participants of Federally-assisted programs and projects. The SNHPC further assures that every effort will be made to ensure nondiscrimination in all of its programs and operations, regardless of funding source.

The objectives of the SNHPC’s Title VI Program are as follows:

  • To ensure the level and quality of transportation service is provided without regard to race, color, or national origin;
  • To identify and address, as appropriate, disproportionally high and adverse human health and environmental effects, including social and economic effects of programs and activities on minority populations and low-income populations;
  • To promote the full and fair participation of all affected populations in transportation decision-making;
  • To prevent the denial, reduction or delay in benefits related to programs and activities that benefit minority populations or low-income populations; and
  • To ensure meaningful access to programs and activities by persons with limited English proficiency.

SNHPC MPO meetings are held in accessible locations, and reasonable accommodations are made for individuals with disabilities upon request within a reasonable advance notice period (usually two weeks or 10 business days).
