Public Review and Comment Period

DRAFT 2021 TITLE VI NONDISCRIMINATION IN FEDERALLY ASSISTED PROGRAMS, LIMITED ENGLISH PROFICIENCY (LEP), AND PUBLIC PARTICIPATION PLAN (PPP)

The Yuma Metropolitan Planning Organization (YMPO) will initiate a public comment and review period on the Draft 2020 Title VI Nondiscrimination in Federally Assisted Programs, Limited English Proficiency (LEP), and the Public Participation Plan (PPP). The Title VI Plan defines who is protected under the program. No Person in the United States shall, on the grounds 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.

The Title VI Plan includes the Limited English Proficiency Plan to enable the non-English speaker the opportunity to have a means of communications in an interpreter or document translation for regular business of the organization.

The Public Participation Plan establishes a model for effective public engagement. It contains written procedures for including the public in a communities planning process.

The Draft 2020 Title VI Plan, LEP, and PPP are available for review and comment on the Yuma MPO website at https://ympo.org/studies-reports/title-vi-report/, during normal business hours at the Yuma MPO office, located at 502 S. Orange Ave, Yuma AZ 85364, and Facebook (Yuma M PO).

Public comments are welcome online or may be submitted in writing by August 27, 2020 by 5:00 PM to the address below.
