Your Rights Under Title VI

Civil Rights Act of 1964

The Law

Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act requires that “No person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.”


Title VI covers all agencies receiving federal funds. Title VI applies to discrimination throughout an agency, not just actions involving federally assisted programs.

Filing a Complaint

Title VI complaints involving recipients and beneficiaries may be filed with the Title VI Coordinator by an individual, a class, or by a third party, within 90 days from the date of the alleged discriminatory act. Complaints should be directed to the Title VI Coordinator, 301 S. 8th Street, Waco, TX 76710, phone number (254) 750-1900, or the Federal Transit Administration Office of Civil Rights, Attention: Title VI Program Coordinator, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE Washington, DC 20590.

It shall be against the policy of Waco Transit System to discriminate against an individual based upon that person's race, color, or national origin.
