Title VI/ADA

The Sioux Falls MPO, by virtue of accepting federal funding, pledges to not discriminate against anyone on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, minority status, or income level.  Each document posted at the bottom of the page is explained below:


Title VI of the Civil Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin.  In addition, other statutes, laws, regulations, executive orders, and the U.S. Constitution provide general guidance for the effective execution of the objectives of Title VI.  These include:

  • Section 324 of the Federal Aid Highway Act, the enabling legislation of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), which prohibits discrimination based on sex; and
  • The 1994 Presidential Executive Order which directed every federal agency to make Environmental Justice (EJ) a part of its mission by identifying and addressing the effects of all programs, policies, and activities on minority populations and low-income populations.
The Sioux Falls MPO commits to upholding the principles of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and related guidance.  The Sioux Falls MPO's policies and programs should not discriminate against people based on race, color, national origin, or sex.  The MPO's policies and programs should avoid disproportionately negative effects on minority and low-income populations.  The Sioux Falls MPO seeks to involve as broad a cross-section of the region's population, in addition to the population segments and certain organizations with special interest in transportation.


The Sioux Falls MPO periodically updates its Title VI programs with the Federal Highway Administration and the Federal Transit Administration.  While the programs remain unchanged for years at a time, the MPO regularly reaffirms that it will adhere to Title VI requirements by signing "Assurances."

Language Assistance Plan

The Language Assistance Plan (LAP) seeks to ensure that individuals with limited English proficiency have meaningful access to the transportation planning process.  The LAP is found on page 4 of the SF MPO LEP Analysis document.
