Title VI - Compliance Program

‚ÄčThe County of Adams Title VI Complaint Procedures are written to specify the process employed by the County to investigate complaints, while ensuring due process for complainants and respondents.  The process does not preclude the County of Adams from attempting to informally resolve complaints.

These procedures apply to all external complaints relating to any program or activity administered by Adams County and/or its sub-recipients, consultants and contractors, filed under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 as amended, (including Disadvantaged Business Enterprise and Equal Employment Opportunity components), as well as other related laws that prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, color, disability, sex, age, low income, nationality or Limited English Proficiency.  This includes, but is not limited to, the following programs:

  • Adams County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO),
  • Community Development Block Grants (CDBG),
  • Fair Housing,
  • Any other federally-funded program administered by the County of Adams. 
Additional statutes include, but are not limited to, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Civil Rights Restoration Act of 1987, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.  Intimidation or retaliation of any kind is prohibited by law.
