CAMPO is committed to encouraging fair and meaningful participation by all communities and individuals in the CAMPO region and ensuring that the impacts of CAMPO programs and activities are distributed equitably throughout the region. Learn more through CAMPO’s Public Participation Plan.


Environmental Justice

Environmental justice is an executive order to ensure that federally funded programs, policies, or activities, including those related to transportation, that have the potential to adversely or negatively affect human health or the environment explicitly consider the effects on minority populations and low-income populations.

CAMPO Environmental Justice Areas Map

The CAMPO Environmental Justice areas map shows traffic analysis zones where 50 percent or more of the population is minority or low-income or where 25 percent of the population lives in poverty. The map is used to identify situations where additional analysis is needed before a proposed transportation project, such as a new regional highway, can be developed. The CAMPO Environmental Justice areas are updated with each long range planning process.

Title VI – CAMPO Notice to the Public

The Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization hereby gives public notice that it is the policy of CAMPO to assure full compliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Civil Rights Restoration Act of 1987, Executive Order 12898 on Environmental Justice, and related statutes and regulations in all programs and activities.

Civil Rights & Title VI

Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VI) is a Federal law passed by Congress that prohibits recipients of Federal financial assistance, such as MPOs, from discriminating on the basis of race, color, or national origin in their programs or activities. CAMPO is committed to providing equitable services in the full range of MPO activities, including public involvement.

Any person who believes they have been subjected to a type of discrimination prohibited under Title VI may file a complaint in accordance with the CAMPO External Discrimination Complaint Process.

Limited English Proficiency (LEP) refers to a person’s inability to speak, read, or understand English due to their national origin. Discrimination on the basis of a person’s inability to speak, read, or understand English is a type of national origin discrimination and is prohibited under Title VI. Any person who believes they have been discriminated against because of their inability to read, speak, or understand English may file a complaint in accordance with the CAMPO External Discrimination Complaint Process.

How to File a Title IV Complaint

As a recipient of federal funds, CAMPO must comply with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 42 U.S.C 2000d, et seq and Executive Order 13166.  Individuals or groups, who have experienced discrimination on the basis of national origin, including the inability to speak or understand English, may file a complaint.  Further details are provided in the CAMPO LEP Plan and Title VI Complaint Process guidance document.  If you have suggestions, questions, or comments regarding language services or Title VI LEP complaints, please contact a CAMPO staff member or email campo@campotexas.org.
