Title VI Nondiscrimination Program

The City of Pittsburg fosters a culture of equity and inclusion by ensuring all community members have access to the City’s services, resources, and programs. The City of Pittsburg does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, religion, age, disability, income or English proficiency. Every effort will be made to ensure nondiscrimination in all of the City’s programs and activities.

 

What is Title VI?

Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 is the Federal law that protects individuals and groups from discrimination based on their race, color, or national origin in programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance. The Civil Rights Restoration Act of 1987 clarified the intent of Title VI to include all programs and activities of Federal-aid recipients, subrecipients and contractors whether those programs and activities are federally funded or not.

 

Complaint Procedure

The City of Pittsburg has established a discrimination complaint procedure which outlines a process for investigating Title VI complaints. Any person who believes that they, individually, as a member of any specific class, or in connection with any disadvantaged business enterprise, has been subjected to discrimination prohibited by Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the American with Disabilities Act of 1990, Section 504 of the Vocational Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Civil Rights Restoration Act of 1987, as amended, may file a complaint with the City of Pittsburg.

  1. Submission of Complaint: File a written complaint within 180 calendar days after 1) the date the alleged act of discrimination; or 2) where there has been a continuing course of conduct, the date on which that conduct was discontinued. If necessary, the Title VI Coordinator will assist the person in reducing the complaint to writing and submit the written version of the complaint to the person for signature.
  2. Review of Complaint: Within 10 days, the Title VI Coordinator will acknowledge receipt of the allegation, inform the complainant of action taken or proposed action to process the allegation, and advise the complainant of other avenues of redress available, such as KDOT or USDOT.
