Notifying the Public of Rights Under Title VI

The of Arc South Florida

It is the policy of The Arc of South Florida to ensure compliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and all related statutes.  Title VI requires that no person in the United States of America shall, on the grounds of race, color or national origin, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal funds.

The Arc of South Florida strictly forbids and will not tolerate actions that intimidate, threaten, coerce, or discriminate against any individual for the purpose of interfering with any right or privilege secured by Title VI, or because he/she has made a complaint, testified, assisted, or participated in any manner in an investigation, proceeding, or hearing under this policy.

Any person who believes that he or she has individually, or as a member of any specific class of people, been excluded from the participation in, been denied the benefits of, or been otherwise subjected to discrimination under any program or activity, and believes the discrimination is based upon race, color, national origin, gender, age, economic status or limited English proficiency has the right to file a formal complaint.

The Arc of South Florida has developed the following Title VI procedure and forms for use by any person who believes that she or he has been aggrieved by any unlawful discriminatory practice under Title VI.  Complaints, within 180 days of the alleged discrimination, may be filed in writing to:

The Arc of South Florida, Attn: Executive Director, 15280 NW 79 Court. Suite 251. Miami Lakes FL 33016
