Public Responsibilities

Transportation agencies cannot fully meet community needs without the active participation of well-informed, empowered individuals, community groups, and other non-government organizations such as businesses and academic institutions. These individuals and groups advance the letter, spirit, and intent of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and environmental justice in transportation by:

  • Participating in public involvement activities (meetings, hearings, advisory groups, and tasks forces) to help responsible state and local agencies understand community needs, perceptions, and goals.

Get involved with state and local agencies to link special programs with other Federal, State, and local resources to fund projects that support community goals.
