Developmental Enrichment Centers (DEC) policy assures full compliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights act of 1964 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 Developmental Enrichment Centers sponsored program or activity. There is no distinction between the sources of funding.
Developmental Enrichment Centers (DEC) 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, Developmental Enrichment Centers (DEC) will take reasonable steps to provide meaningful access to services for persons with limited English proficiency.
When Developmental Enrichment Centers (DEC) distributes Federal-aid funds to another entity/person, Developmental Enrichment Centers (DEC) will ensure all sub-recipients fully comply with Developmental Enrichment Centers (DEC) Title VI nondiscrimination program requirements. The President and CEO has delegated the authority to the Quality Assurance Administer, as Title VI Program coordinator, to oversee and implement FTA Title VI requirements.
