The Shasta Participation and Partnership Plan (Title VI) combines the following documents required by federal and state funding partners:

  • Public Participation Plan – Policies and strategies used to ensure every resident has the opportunity to evaluate and comment on the agency’s plans, programs, and projects.
  • Title VI Plan – Policies and strategies used to ensure that no person is excluded from the equitable distribution of services on the basis of race, color, and national origin.  Title VI refers to the Civil Rights Act of 1964. 
  • Limited English Proficiency Plan – Policies and strategies used to ensure that information about the agency’s programs and projects is accessible to individuals with limited English proficiency. 
  • Federal Land Management Agency Consultation Process – Roles, responsibilities and actions for projects that involve federal land management agencies.
  • Native American Tribal Government Consultation Process – Policies and procedures for consultation with federally recognized Native American Tribal Governments.

The plan is updated every three years. As part of the update process, SRTA staff evaluates demographic information and outreach techniques to ensure everyone is given equitable access to its services and equal opportunity for input. The public participation element of the plan contains a list of most common tools and techniques that SRTA may use for public outreach efforts, ranging from the traditional (hearings and workshops) to the modern (websites, social media).  Please review the plan for more information.
