2015 Title VI Program Update

Updated in June of 2015, the WAMPO Title VI Program outlines the various activities associated with carrying out the metropolitan transportation planning process in a nondiscriminatory manner. The updated Title VI Program and associated Limited English Proficiency Plan contains both the program and plan updates as well as reporting on the new FTA requirements outlined in the Title VI circular 4702.1 B. The following is a summary of some of the key elements and findings within both documents:

  • The update to the Title VI Program included the new requirement of reporting both board and committee demographics, most specifically minority population representation. Based on an analysis of these groups, the distribution of the existing board/committee make-up showed opportunities for diversification among representatives.
  • To date no Title VI complaints have been submitted for WAMPO or any of its sub-recipients.
  • Another new requirement included an analysis of the WAMPO region minority populations overlaid with the existing distribution of State and Federal transportation funds. The purpose of this analysis was to determine if there were any disparate impacts associated with the funding distribution to minority populations in the WAMPO area. The findings of this analysis showed that there were no disparate impacts.
  • The Limited English Proficiency Plan (LEP) analyzes the prevalence of individuals with limited English proficiency in the WAMPO area. The LEP plan was updated based on new census data, which showed both Vietnamese and Spanish speaking individuals as the two primary LEP populations in the WAMPO area.
