Home / Title VI


The Mississippi Development Authority shall not discriminate against an individual based upon that person’s race, color, or national origin. This policy applies to applicants for employment and current employees as well as sub-recipients and subcontractors of the Mississippi Development Authority that receive federal funding.

 The Law

Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act requires that “No person in the United States shall, on the ground 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.”


Title VI covers all agencies receiving federal funds. Some examples include employee training; grants; loans, property; loans of personnel, tax incentives; and technical assistance. Title VI applies to discrimination throughout an agency, not just actions involving federally assisted programs.
