Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964

Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (42 U.S.C. § 2000d) prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin by any entity receiving financial assistance from the U.S. Government. The intent of this law is to ensure that all persons, regardless of their race, color, or national origin, can access the benefits of and participate in any program or activity that receives federal financial assistance.

It is the policy and intent of the City of Murfreesboro to comply with Title VI and to ensure that all its residents have access to City-funded programs and services. In addition, City policy prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin by its employees, by any subcontractor of a City department that receives federal funds, or any entity that receives federal funds as a sub-recipient by way of the City. A copy of the City’s Title VI Policy and Complaint Procedures is available here.

If you believe you or someone else has been discriminated on the basis of race, color, or national origin by the City, a City official, employee, or contractor, or a City sub-recipient of federal funds, you may file a complaint by completing and submitting a Title VI Complaint Form. This form may be submitted online electronically or printed, completed, and mailed to the City.
