WSDOT’s Title VI Policy Statement
The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) assures that no person shall, on the grounds of race, color, or national origin as provided by Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the Civil Rights Restoration Act of 1987 (P.L. 100.259), be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be otherwise subjected to discrimination under any program or activity. WSDOT further assures every effort will be made to ensure nondiscrimination in all of its programs and activities, whether those programs and activities are federally funded or not.
Title VI Mission
The WSDOT's Title VI Program’s primary goal is to ensure all management, staff, contractors, local agencies, and service beneficiaries are aware of the provisions of Title VI and the responsibilities associated with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
WSDOT's Title VI Program is responsible for providing leadership, direction and policy to ensure compliance with Title VI and Environmental Justice and Limited English Proficiency principles and to ensure that social impacts to communities and people are recognized and considered throughout the transportation planning and decision-making process.
