Title VI Plan


For more information about this plan, contact Miranda by email or phone: (831) 264-5096

The federally required Title VI Plan is a comprehensive document that guides AMBAG in the Title VI process. AMBAG receives federal funding through Caltrans and therefore is subject to this federal requirement. In 2012, the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) set new guidelines for Caltrans requiring sub-recipients of Caltrans Planning Grants to submit a Title VI Plan to FTA every three years. AMBAG, as a sub-recipient of such funds and as the federally designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the Monterey Bay Region, must prepare and adopt a Title VI Plan at least once every three years.

The 2018 Title VI Plan will cover the three-year period from 2018-2021 and must comply with FTA Circular 4702.1B. The 2018 Title VI Plan emphasizes the AMBAG Title VI process and procedures, including the use of public outreach techniques and innovative strategies to specifically include Limited English Proficiency (LEP) Populations within the region.

Title VI is a Federal statute and provides that no person shall, on the grounds of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance. The requirements for the 2015 Title VI Plan under FTA Circular 4702.1B incorporates environmental justice principles into plans, projects, and activities that receive funding from FTA.

A Title VI Plan is the required guide for all Title VI related activities conducted by AMBAG. As such, this plan will contain the procedures, strategies and techniques that will be used by AMBAG for increasing public involvement in all programs and projects that use federal funds and creating a more inclusive public participation process for LEP Populations.
