TITLE VI COMPLAINT AND INVESTIGATION PROCEDURES SUMMARY
East Central Intergovernmental Association (ECIA) hereby gives public notice that it is the policy of ECIA to assure full compliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, related statutes and regulation providing that no person shall on the ground of race, color, national origin, gender, age or disability be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance. The Civil Rights Restoration Act of 1987 amended Title VI to specify that entire institutions receiving federal funds, whether schools, colleges, government entities, or private employers, must comply with Federal civil rights laws, rather than just the particular programs or activities that receive federal funds. To receive more information on the ECIA's obligations regarding Title VI, please contact ECIA's Director of Finance and Human Resources or The Civil Rights Coordinator as listed below.
We are also concerned about the impacts of our programs, projects and activities on low income and minority populations ("Environmental Justice") under Title VI. Any person who believes that they are being denied participation in a project, being denied benefits of a program, or otherwise being discriminated against because of race, color, national origin, gender, age, or disability, may contact:
Director of Finance and Human Resources
The Civil Rights Coordinator
You should contact one of the above individuals as soon as possible but no later than 180 days after the alleged discrimination occurred, or if there has been a continuing course of conduct, no later than 180 days after the alleged discrimination was discontinued. Contact ECIA's Director of Finance and Human Resources or the Civil Rights Coordinator to get more information on the Title VI program.
If information is needed in another language, contact 563-556-4166.
