Title VI (Non-Discrimination)

Pima Association of Governments complies with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and related statutes and regulations in all programs and activities. As such, PAG operates without regard to race, color, national origin, age, gender, income or disability. PAG meetings are held in accessible locations, and materials are provided in accessible formats in languages other than English upon request within a reasonable advance notice period.

PAG’s Title VI Report provides detailed information on how PAG meets its obligations under Title VI in its interactions with the public and through its contracting relationships with organizations that receive federal funds. The Non-Discrimination Policy lists the measures PAG takes to ensure non-discrimination in its programs and activities and how to submit a discrimination complaint. PAG’s Limited English Proficiency (LEP) Plan assesses the number or portion of persons with limited English proficiency served by PAG’s service area and outlines the language assistance measures that PAG employs. 
 
Any person who believes they have been discriminated against by PAG or any of its sub-recipients or contractors may file a written complaint with PAG and/or the ADOT Civil Rights Office. If the complaint is filed against PAG, the PAG Title VI Liaison is required to forward the complaint to the ADOT Civil Rights Office. All complaints will be promptly investigated by the ADOT Civil Rights Office.

Overview of PAG

Pima Association of Governments is our region’s metropolitan planning organization with transportation, energy and sustainable environment planning divisions. A 501(c)4 nonprofit association, PAG is a council of governments (estab. 1972) with local, state and tribal government members serving on the PAG Regional Council.

As the metropolitan planning organization, one of PAG’s responsibilities is to coordinate development of the long and short-range regional transportation plans for our region. The long-range Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) secures federal funding for our region by identifying the most efficient improvements to our transportation system over the next 30 years. The short-range transportation plan, called the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), is a five-year schedule and budget of proposed transportation improvements that are drawn from the RTP.
 
PAG manages the Regional Transportation Authority, which is the fiscal manager of the 20-year, $2.1 billion RTA plan. The locally funded regional transportation plan was approved by Pima County voters on May 16, 2006, and includes roadway, transit, safety, and environmental and economic improvement projects.
 
The Energy Planning Division promotes alternative energy use through two programs: the Tucson Regional Clean Cities program and the Southern Arizona Regional Solar Partnership. Clean Cites is a voluntary program of the U.S. Department of Energy and promotes the use of alternatively fueled vehicles and educates the public about the use of clean-fuel technology. The Southern Arizona Regional Solar Partnership is a cooperative effort among government agencies, local businesses and individuals to encourage the use of solar power, which is an abundant natural resource in our region.
 
PAG’s Sustainable Environment Program supports the long-term environmental, economic and social vitality of our community. This program builds partnerships and coordinates among watershed, air quality and travel demand management planners in developing data, educating, planning and advising. PAG also implements the Travel Demand Management Program which works to reduce traffic congestion and improve air quality by promoting commute and non-commute travel options like rideshare and vanpool programs. 
 
PAG also has a technical services division that collects traffic data and provides mapping services and populations projections for our member jurisdictions.
