Title VI

About Title VI

The City of Cornelia gives public notice of its policy to assure full compliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and related regulations. Specifically, Title VI provides that “no person in the United States shall, on the grounds of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.”


Toward this end, it is the City of Cornelia’s objective to:

  • Ensure that the level and quality of services are provided without regard to race, color or national origin;
  • Identify and address, as appropriate, disproportionately high and adverse human health and environmental effects, including social and economic effects of programs and activities on minority populations and low-income populations;
  • Promote the full and fair participation of all affected populations in decision making;
  • Prevent the denial, reduction or delay in benefits related to programs and activities that benefit minority populations or low-income populations;
  • Ensure meaningful access to programs and activities by persons with limited English proficiency.

If you believe that you have been excluded from participation in, been denied the benefits of, or been subjected to discrimination under any City of Cornelia service, program or activity, you may file an official Title VI complaint with the Title VI Coordinator.
