Title VI and Non-Discrimination Programs

Aisha Powell, Title VI Coordinator

"No person in the United States shall, on the grounds of race, color or national origin,
be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefit of, or be subjected to discrimination
under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance."
-1964 Civil Rights Act, Title VI

​The Ohio Department of Transportation strongly opposes the discrimination of any person--whether among our employees, our business partners, or the citizens who benefit from Ohio's transportation system--for any reason, including race, color, national origin, age, gender, disability, or proficiency in English.

We stand against discrimination for two reasons. First, because it's the right thing to do. Secondly, because we are required to under Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act as well as other laws and executive orders.


 Discrimination Complaints

Any person who believes he or she has been denied benefits or excluded from participation in services of any program or activity administered by the Department or its sub-recipients, consultants, or contractors on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age, disability, low-income status, or limited English proficiency may file a written complaint within 180 days of the alleged discriminatory conduct.
