The Evansville Metropolitan Planning Organization hereby gives public notice that it is the policy of the agency to assure full compliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Civil Rights Restoration Act of 1987, Executive Order 12898 on Environmental Justice and related statutes and regulations in all programs and activities.
Title VI requires that no person in the United State of America shall, on the grounds of race, color, sex, or national origin, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be otherwise subjected to discrimination under any program or activity for which the EMPO receives federal financial assistance.
Any person who believes they have been aggrieved by an unlawful discriminatory practice under Title VI has a right to file a formal complaint with the EMPO. The Title VI Complaint Procedures detail the process for submitting your complaint. Any such complaint must be in writing using the Title VI Complaint Form and filed with the EMPO’s Title VI Coordinator within one hundred eighty (180) days following the date of the alleged discriminatory occurrence. The Title VI/LEP Plan includes detailed information on your rights under Title VI and contact information to send complaints directly to FHWA or FTA. The Title VI notice to the public and a hard-copy of the Title VI/LEP Plan are available for viewing at the MPO office (1 NW Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd., Civic Center Complex – Room 316, Evansville, IN 47708). A digital copy of the Title VI/LEP Plan in PDF format is available by clicking here. The Title VI notice to the public is included on page 4 of the Plan.

Accommodations are made to serve persons with disabilities in compliance with the ADA/504. Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 504), the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) and related federal and state laws and regulations forbid discrimination against those who have disabilities. These laws require federal aid recipients and other government entities to take affirmative steps to reasonably accommodate the disabled and ensure that their needs are equitably represented in the transportation planning process.
The Evansville MPO endeavors to ensure that its facilities, programs, services, and activities are available to those with disabilities in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The MPO also strives to ensure input from individuals with disabilities is incorporated in the MPO’s programs, services and activities.
The MPO encourages the public to report any facility, program, service or activity within the planning area that appears inaccessible to the disabled. Furthermore, the MPO will provide reasonable accommodation to disabled individuals who wish to participate in meetings, public participation activities, or other events or programs of the MPO, or who require special assistance to access MPO facilities, programs, services or activities. Because providing reasonable accommodation may require outside assistance, organization or resources, the MPO asks that requests be made as soon as possible prior to the need for accommodation. If you have a request, please contact Matt Schriefer at (812) 436-7837.
If you feel that you have been denied access to the Evansville MPO Planning Process, you may file a complaint with the MPO. The ADA Complaint Procedures detail the process for submitting your complaint. Any such complaint must be in writing using the ADA Complaint Form and filed with the MPO's ADA Coordinator within one hundred eighty (180) days following the date of the alleged discriminatory occurrence or denial of access.
