Title VI Compliance Program

Purpose

The purpose of the Title VI Compliance Program is to verify that all state governmental entities that are recipients of Federal financial assistance comply with the requirements of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. State governmental entities that are subject to the requirements of Title VI must submit annual compliance reports and implementation plan updates to The Tennessee Human Rights Commission by October 1, 2010, and each October 1 thereafter. The Tennessee Human Rights Commission will effectively monitor for Title VI compliance by developing a statewide Title VI implementation plan, publishing reports of its findings and recommendations concerning compliance for distribution to the governor and the general assembly, and serving as the central coordinating agency for the executive branch departments and agencies for technical assistance, consultation and resources.
