As a recipient of Federal financial assistance, ODOT instituted a Title VI Program to address nondiscrimination laws that impact transportation investment decision making. Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, related statutes and policies prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender, age, and disability in the Agency’s programs, activities and services. The purpose of the Title VI and related statutes and policies is to ensure that public funds are not spent in a way that encourages, subsidizes or results in discrimination.

Planning, design, construction, and operations and maintenance projects across all travel modes have well defined Title VI and Environmental Justice compliance components. ODOT and our transportation partners are committed to developing and refining our technical capability to assess the benefits and adverse effects of all of our transportation activities, among different population groups, and use that capability to develop appropriate procedures, goals, and performance measures in all aspects of our mission.
