Title VI Program
East-West Gateway Council of Governments (EWG) fully complies with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and related statutes and regulations in all programs and activities and is dedicated to an inclusive planning process that ensures that citizens are informed about and given meaningful opportunities to engage in regional planning efforts and decision making. EWG’s Title VI Program is designed to protect against discrimination and ensure that all agency planning processes are fair and consider issues that impact disadvantaged residents. The Title VI Program also describes how EWG will comply with nondiscrimination requirements found in Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, executive orders that address environmental justice (EJ) and persons with limited English proficiency (LEP), and other federal civil rights requirements like those found in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
