Title VI Nondiscrimination Statement of Policy
The Title IV plan was reviewed and updated by the SFMPO in 2021. It was approved by the TPB (Transportation Policy Board) in November of 2021 pending minor adjustments to language. This document will be updated soon.
The Santa Fe Metropolitan Planning Organization (SFMPO) is committed to compliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 49 CFR, part 2, and all related regulations and directives.
SFMPO assures that no person shall on the grounds of race, color, national origin, gender, age, or disability be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity under any SFMPO program, activity or service.
An individual, group of individuals or entity may file a formal Title VI complaint. If you believe that you have received discriminatory treatment by the Santa Fe MPO on the basis of your race, color or national origin, you have the right to file a complaint with the City of Santa Fe EOCC Compliance Officer. The complaint must be filed no later than 180 calendar days of the alleged discriminatory incident.
The preferred method is to file your complaint in writing using the Title VI Complaint Form and sending it to:
City of Santa Fe
EOCC Compliance Officer
Human Resources Department
PO Box 909
Santa Fe, NM 87504
Verbal complaints will be accepted and transcribed by the Human Resources Department. To make a verbal complaint, call (505) 955-6591 and ask for the EEOC Compliance Officer
SFMPO is also committed to assure every effort will be made to prevent the discrimination of low-income and minority populations as a result of any impact of its programs or activities in accordance with Executive Order 12898, Federal Actions to Address Environmental Justice in Minority Populations and in Low-Income Populations. In addition, the SFMPO also assures every effort will be made to provide meaningful access to persons that have Limited English Proficiency, in accordance with Executive Order 13166, Improving Access to Services for Persons with Limited English Proficiency.
Federal financial assistance is defined as any Federal dollars that are assigned to the SFMPO to support any program and activity, by way of grant, loan or contract, other than a contract of insurance or guaranty. The SFMPO typically receives planning funds from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) to carry out the transportation planning requirements as set forth by the federal law Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21).

After mapping, projects can be prioritized for funding and implementation. The highest priority projects will be accessible for review with member governments so they can be included into the Capital Improvement Plan (CIP). . Based on concentrations of high priority projects, high priority pedestrian improvement zones can be designated to complete improvements by geographic area.
