DOJ/CRT RIN: 1190-AA70 Publication ID: Fall 2016 
Title: Amendments to the Coordination of Enforcement of Non-Discrimination in Federally Assisted Programs 

The coordination regulations applicable to title VI of the Civil Rights Act, 28 CFR 42.401 to 42.415, have not been revised for more than 30 years. These regulations govern Federal agency enforcement of title VI. The Department proposes updating these regulations to revise outdated provisions and streamline procedural steps. Changes would address procedural requirements intended to improve the Department's ability to fulfill its coordination and oversight function under Executive Order 12250. Changes also would address amendments to title VI found in the Civil Rights Restoration Act of 1987, which added definitions of "program or activity" and "program" to restore their broad meaning and application. Federal agencies adopted these definitions in their title VI regulations in 2003. The Department is also considering streamlining and clarifying provisions regarding opportunities to encourage public engagement and transparency, as well as further incorporating current law regarding meaningful access for individuals who are limited English proficient.
