Compliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
The Town of Simsbury does not discriminate in the provision of services, the administration of its programs, or contractual agreements. The Town of Simsbury seeks to fully carry out its responsibilities under the Title VI Regulations, as amended, and related statutes and regulations (collectively, the “Regulations”) in all Town of Simsbury programs and activities.
Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination on the grounds of race, color or national origin in programs and activities receiving Federal financial assistance. Title VI 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 otherwise subjected to discrimination under any programs covered by the Regulations.
This policy is effectuated through the methods of administration outlined in the Town of Simsbury’s Fair Housing Plan and is fully implemented to ensure compliance by the Town of Simsbury, as the recipient, and by sub-recipients. The cooperation of all personnel is required.
