These federal statutes require that no person shall, on the grounds of race, color or national origin be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be otherwise subjected to discrimination under any program, service or activity receiving Federal financial assistance from the US Department of Transportation. The Title VI plan is inclusive of limited English proficiency requirements.
