Title VI Policy

Title VI Notice to the Public

The Town of Plainfield hereby gives public notice that it is the policy of our organization to ensure full compliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Civil Rights Restoration Act of 1987, Executive Order 12898 on Environmental Justice, and related authorities and regulations in all programs and activities. Title VI requires that no person in the United States of America shall, on the grounds of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be otherwise subjected to discrimination under any program or activity for which the Town receives federal financial assistance. Additional protections are provided in other federal and state authorities for discrimination based on income status, limited English proficiency, religion, sex, disability, age, gender identity (as defined in paragraph 249(c)(4) of title 18, United States Code) or sexual orientation. Any person who believes they have experienced discrimination under Title VI has a right to file a formal complaint with the Town of Plainfield. Any such complaint must be filed with the Town of Plainfield’s Title VI Coordinator within 180 days following the date of the alleged discriminatory occurrence.
