A.  Policy of Nondiscrimination

Green Bay Metro assures that no person shall on the grounds of race, color, or national origin, as provided by Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the Civil Rights Restoration Act of 1987, (P.L. 100.259) be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity provided by Green Bay Metro.

Title VI compliance is a condition of receipt of federal funds.  Patricia Kiewiz, Green Bay Metro Transit Director, serves as the Title VI Coordinator and is authorized to ensure compliance with this policy and the law, including the requirements of the Code of Federal Regulation (CFR).
