WATS' website https://www.lyco.org/WATS-MPO, may be translated into multiple languages. Publications and other public documents can be made available in alternative languages and formats, as requested. 

WATS’ public meetings are always held in ADA-accessible facilities and in transit-accessible locations when possible. In the event that a WATS MPO meeting is held via a virtual format the dial-in numbers, conference codes, and meeting links will be advertised and posted on the WATS MPO social media sites, and the WATS MPO Committees website. Auxiliary services can be provided to individuals who submit a request at least four (4) business-days prior to a meeting. Requests made within three (3) business-days will be accommodated to the greatest extent possible.

Title VI requires that no person in the United States of America shall, on the grounds of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be otherwise subjected to discrimination under any program or activity for which WATS receives federal financial assistance.

Any person who believes they have been aggrieved by an unlawful discriminatory practice by WATS under Title VI has a right to file a formal complaint. Any such complaint may be in writing and filed with the WATS’s Title VI Compliance Officer and/or the appropriate state or federal agency within 180 days of the alleged discriminatory occurrence.
