Environmental Justice and Title VI Plan

The Rogue Valley Metropolitan Planning Organization (RVMPO) Environmental Justice and Title VI Plan has been developed to meet federal and state requirements for Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) to fulfill obligations under Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, the President’s Executive Order on Environmental Justice (1994) and subsequent orders and enforcement regulations. Referred to generally as Title VI and Environmental Justice, the provisions are intended to prevent federally funded actions from having disproportionate impacts on certain populations and ensure that members of the public have equal access to the decision making process.
