The SVMPO commits to a policy of non-discrimination and strives to ensure nondiscrimination in all of its programs and activities, whether those programs and activities are federally funded or not. The SVMPO Title Plan is updated annually and is usually adopted in June of each year. This Plan includes the most recent data about the demographic profile for the SVMPO region, outreach strategies for the region’s vulnerable population groups, and describes the process to address any complaints that might be filed against the SVMPO. An annual Title VI Goal and Accomplishment report is also submitted to the Arizona Department of Transportation’s Civil Right’s Division by August of each year.
Any person that believes they may have a complaint about how they, or a class of person, has been treated by any of the federally funded programs or activities that the SVMPO administers, the SVMPO would like to know about your concerns and work with you to find a resolution. The forms below provide information about how to file your complaint and the forms you need to use. If you have any questions, or want to file your complaint in person or by phone, you may contact the SVMPO Administrator/Title VI Coordinator, Karen Lamberton, directly.
