Title VI Program
Title VI regulations are a suite, or collection, of several federal regulations that guide federal programs. Title VI refers to a specific section of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, but it is more than only the one law. All agencies that receive federal funds must comply with the Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Civil Rights Restoration Act of 1987 and all relevant Executive Orders. Much of transportation funding comes from the federal government, which in turn funds local projects. It is the full intent of the St. Joseph Area Transportation Study Organization (SJATSO) to operate its program without regards to race, color, and national origin.
