Notice of Final Title VI and Title VI--Dependent Guidelines for Federal Transit Administration Recipients.

The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) has revised its Title VI Circular 4702.1 and is publishing a new Circular 4702.1A, ``Title VI and Title VI--Dependent Guidelines for Federal Transit Administration Recipients.'' The purpose of this circular is to provide recipients and subrecipients of Federal Transit Administration (FTA) financial assistance with guidance and instructions necessary to carry out the U.S. Department of Transportation's (``DOT'' or the ``Department'') Title VI regulations (49 CFR part 21) and to integrate into their programs and activities considerations expressed in the Department's Order on Environmental Justice (Order 5610.2), and Policy Guidance Concerning Recipients' Responsibilities to Limited English Proficient (``LEP'') Persons (70 FR 74087, December 14, 2005). Circular 4702.1A includes requirements and procedures which, if followed, will ensure that no person in the United States shall, on the basis of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving financial assistance from FTA.
