It is the policy of the Central MS Planning and Development District as the designated Jackson Metropolitan Planning Organization to assure full compliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Civil Rights Restoration Act of 1987, Executive Order 12898 Environmental Justice, and related statutes and regulations in all programs and activities of the Jackson MPO. Title VI requires that no person in the Unites States shall, on the grounds of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from the participation in, be denied benefits of, or be otherwise subjected to discrimination under any program or activity for which the Jackson MPO received federal financial assistance. All programs funded in whole or in part from federal financial assistance are subject to Title VI requirements.
Any person who feels that he or she, individually or as a member of any class of persons, on the basis of race, color, or national origin, has been excluded from or denied the benefits of, or subjected to discrimination caused by the Jackson MPO may file a complaint with the MPO’s Title VI Coordinator. The complaint form is available for download and in hard copy at the MPO office. Upon request, the MPO will mail the complaint form. Such complaints must be filed in writing within 180 calendar days from the last date of the alleged discrimination. Reasonable efforts will be made to assist persons with disabilities, non-English speakers, and others unable to file a written complaint. For assistance in filing a complaint, contact the Jackson MPO’s Title VI Coordinator.
