Project overview

All agencies receiving federal financial assistance, including DRCOG, are required to comply with various nondiscrimination laws and regulations, including Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which forbids discrimination against anyone in the United States because of race, color, or national origin.

Further, DRCOG adheres to other federal nondiscrimination statutes that afford legal protection, including the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, which prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in all areas of public life. DRCOG is committed to engaging and involving all residents of the Denver region, including those with limited English proficiency, in its activities.

The Title VI Implementation Plan, Limited English Proficiency Plan and Americans with Disabilities Act Program Access Plan are prepared every three years to document the ongoing Title VI-related activities pursued by DRCOG over the previous period. Additionally, DRCOG staff have developed the agency's first Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Plan covering the agency's 5310 Program this year.
