Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and related nondiscrimination laws prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, limited English proficiency, income status, sex, age, and disability in programs and activities receiving federal financial assistance.
As a federal-aid recipient, NCDOT must ensure nondiscrimination and equal opportunity in all NCDOT programs and activities – whether or not those programs and activities are federally funded – including associated activities performed by NCDOT's business partners. Contractors and consultants performing work for NCDOT must comply with NCDOT's nondiscrimination requirements, and are responsible for the following:
Reviewing the Title VI and Nondiscrimination section(s) in your contract or agreement with NCDOT.
Under federal-aid contracts, incorporating the appropriate Title VI clauses into contracts with your subcontractors or sub-consultants.
Contacting the NCDOT business unit or program under which you are contracted with any questions regarding your contract requirements.
