Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and related non-discrimination statutes require that recipients of federal financial assistance ensure that no one is excluded from participation in, denied the benefits of, or subjected to discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability in any federally-assisted program or activity. Financial assistance includes grants, training, use of equipment or property, donation of surplus property, and any other forms of federal assistance not specifically identified.

El Paso County will thoroughly and timely investigate any Title VI complaints it receives against the County, County employees, subrecipients, or contractors. Complaints must be filed in writing within 180 days from the last date of the alleged discrimination. If you believe your complaint may fall outside of this deadline, please contact the El Paso County’s Executive Director of Human Resources.

Any complaints should be made to:
