The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) has placed on its web site the final updated Title VI Circular, Title VI Requirements and Guidelines for Federal Transit Administration Recipients at http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2012-08-28/pdf/2012-21167.pdf.

FTA’s revised circular provides information for grantees on how to comply with Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Title VI regulations, as well as information designed to ensure grantees provide meaningful language access to persons who are limited English proficient. The circular provides specific compliance information for each type of grantee (e.g., transit providers, Metropolitan Planning Organizations, State DOT’s and others) and provides comprehensive appendices including additional guidance and examples to ensure recipients understand the requirements.

FTA will provide webinars and other training opportunities for grantees; updates on webinars will be posted to FTA’s Title VI webpage at http://www.fta.dot.gov/civilrights/12328.html. Please register for email blasts on that page to receive the latest educational opportunities.

The full Circular and Federal Register notice are at http://www.fta.dot.gov/legislation_law/12349_14792.html.
