What is Title VI?
Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 assures nondiscrimination at all agencies that receive federal funding.

Specifically, it states: “No person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.”
