Title VI Policy

As a recipient of federal grant money, Blue Grass Airport is regulated by Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Civil Rights Restoration Act of 1987 (PL 100.259), and Section 520 of the Airport and Airway Improvement Act of 1982. These Acts prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, age (over 40), religion, gender identity, veteran status or disability and mandate that no person shall be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or otherwise be subjected to discrimination in any programs and activities receiving federal financial assistance.

Blue Grass Airport further assures that every effort will be made to ensure nondiscrimination in all of its programs and activities, whether they are federally funded or not. This includes, but is not limited to, the following:

• Denial to an individual of any service or benefit provided under a program

• Distinctions in quality, quantity or manner in which the benefit is provided

• Disparate impact or separate treatment in any program providing services to individuals

• Different standards or requirements for benefits or participation in services provided

• Discrimination in any activities/programs conducted in a facility built in whole or in part with federal financial assistance

• Methods of administration which directly or through contractual relationships would defeat or substantially impair the accomplishment of effective discrimination
