The Title VI and Non-Discrimination / ADA Plan is a document which is required by the Federal Highway Administration and the Federal Transit Administration. Its purpose is to ensure fair treatment to all people within the MPO area, specifically in regards to race, color, sex, age, national origin, disability/handicap, and income status. Any entity receiving federal transportation funds must be compliant with the federal regulations for Title VI.
The Bismarck-Mandan MPO Title VI Plan contains information on the following:
Title VI and Non-Discrimination Policy Statement
Title VI Assurances
Title VI Coordinator Responsibilities
ADA Coordinator Information
Limited English Proficiency Plan
Requests for Reasonable Accommodations Procedure
Active Title VI / ADA Plan
Initially developed by the Bismarck-Mandan MPO in 2011 and adopted by the Policy Board on July 15, 2011, the Title VI and Non-Discrimination Plan is updated periodically. Updates to the document become necessary to ensure continued compliance with all federal regulations. Many updates, including those made to forms, non-substantive changes to language within the document, or the annual goals and accomplishments added each year, do not require formal adoption by the Policy Board. Changes to policy or text which significantly alter the intent of the document do require formal Policy Board approval. Significant revisions to the Plan were most recently adopted by the Policy Board of the Bismarck-Mandan MPO on August 17, 2021.
