If you believe you have been denied the benefits of, excluded from participation in, or subject to discrimination on the grounds of race, color, or national origin by a recipient of FTA funding you may file an administrative complaint with the FTA Office of Civil Rights.

FTA investigates complaints on the basis of intentional discrimination or on the basis of disparate impact discrimination, where a neutral policy or practice has the effect of disproportionately excluding or adversely affecting minority or other protected individuals and the recipient’s practice lacks a substantial legitimate justification.

Complaints should be filed within 180 days of the alleged act of discrimination.
