Title VI and Environmental Justice

FAMPO Title VI Program: It is the policy of the Fayetteville Area Metropolitan Organization (FAMPO), as a federal-aid recipient, to ensure that no person shall, on the ground of race, color, national origin, Limited English Proficiency (LEP), sex, age, or disability (and low-income, where applicable), be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be otherwise subjected to discrimination under any of our programs and activities, as provided by Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Executive Orders 12898 and 13166, the Civil Rights Restoration Act of 1987 and other pertinent nondiscrimination authorities.

Environmental Justice: Environmental Justice (EJ) can be defined as the right to a safe, healthy, productive, and sustainable environment for all, where "environment" is considered in its totality to include the ecological (biological), physical (natural and built), social, political, aesthetic, and economic setting. Environmental Justice refers to the conditions in which such a right can be freely exercised, whereby individual and group identities, needs, and dignities are preserved, fulfiled, and respected in a way that provides self-actualization and personal and community empowerment. FAMPO incorporates elements of EJ within our planning process and our EJ goals and objectives can be found within the FAMPO Environmental Justice Element of the 2045 MTP.
