The ABILITY360 policy assures full compliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights act of 1964, the Restoration Act of 1987, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and related statutes and regulations in all programs and activities. Title VI states that “no person shall on the grounds of race, color, national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be otherwise subjected to discrimination” under any ABILITY360 sponsored program or activity. There is no distinction between the sources of funding.
ABILITY360 also assures that every effort will be made to prevent discrimination through the impacts of its programs, policies and activities on minority and low-income populations. Furthermore, ABILITY360 will take reasonable steps to provide meaningful access to services for persons with Limited English Proficiency.
When ABILITY360 distributes Federal-aid funds to another entity/person, ABILITY360 will ensure all subrecipients fully comply with ABILITY360 Title VI Nondiscrimination Program requirements. The President & CEO has delegated the authority to April Reed, VP of Advocacy at ABILITY360, Title VI Program Coordinator, to oversee and implement FTA Title VI requirements.
