The GWRC and Fredericksburg MPO weigh impacts that its programs may have on Title VI protected populations. Additionally, FAMPO evaluates areas that have a high concentration of Limited English Proficiency populations being served by the MPO in order to ensure that the materials are translated in the respected languages as needed.
To identify Title VI protected populations, GWRC and FAMPO staff have utilized data from the 2010 Census and the 2011-2015 American Community Survey on the county and census tract levels, and evaluated the following social characteristics: minority populations, low-income, persons with disabilities, older adults, and limited English speakers. This data was used to geographically illustrate traditionally underrepresented communities and to begin assessing the needs of, and analyzing potential impacts on Title VI protected populations, as well as assisting the process of outreach to Title VI protected populations.
The FAMPO region is comprised of the City of Fredericksburg, and the Counties of Spotsylvania and Stafford. Additionally the GWRC Region includes the three aforementioned municipalities as well as the Counties of Caroline and King George.
