The City of Greenwood values each individual’s civil rights and strives to provide equal opportunity and equitable service to all.  As a recipient of federal funds, the City complies with Title VI and all related statutes, regulations, and directives which provide that no person shall be excluded from participation in, denied benefits of, or subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance from the City on the grounds of race, color, age sex, sexual orientation, gender identify, disability, national origin, religion, income status, veteran status, limited English proficiency, or any other protected classification under federal law.  The City further assures every effort will be made to ensure nondiscrimination in all of its programs and activities, regardless of whether those programs and activities are federally funded. 

For residents who feel they have experienced discrimination, they may file a complaint with the Indiana Civil Rights Commission (ICRC) or the Fair Housing of Central Indiana.

As a requirement of receiving Community Development Block Grant funds, the city must take steps to assure that discriminatory actions, either explicit or implicit, that constrain the choices of people to procure adequate housing are being identified and mitigated.  As such, the City published the 2019-2023 Analysis of Impediments (AI) to Fair Housing Choice.
