VALLEYLIFE Title VI Policy
The VALLEYLIFE policy assures full compliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights act of 1964, the Restoration Act of 1987 and related statutes and regulations in all programs and activities. Title VI states that "no person shall on the grounds of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be otherwise subjected to discrimination" under any VALLEYLIFE sponsored program or activity. There is no distinction between the sources of funding.
VALLEYLIFE also assures that every effort will be made to prevent discrimination through the impacts of its programs, policies and activities on minority and low-income populations. Furthermore, VALLEYLIFE will take reasonable steps to provide meaningful access to services for persons with limited English proficiency.
When VALLEYLIFE distributes Federal-aid funds to another entity/person, VALLEYLIFE will ensure all subrecipients fully comply with VALLEYLIFE Title VI Nondiscrimination Program requirements. The President & CEO, Cletus Thiebeau, has delegated the authority to Kevin Brown, Title VI Program Coordinator, to oversee and implement FTA Title VI requirements.
