State Plan for Independent Living

The Idaho State Independent Living Council (SILC), in cooperation with the Centers for Independent Living, is gathering input from the community to help us develop the 2020-23 State Plan for Independent Living (SPIL).  The SPIL is a detailed three-year plan that sets the goals for the provision of independent living services in Idaho.  The SILC’s mission is to promote the independent living philosophy for all Idahoans with disabilities: choice, self-determination, and access for all. The SILC and the Centers serve Idahoans across disabilities and lifespan.

This is an opportunity to introduce you to the SILC and your local Centers for Independent Living
and tell you what we do.

This will also help us understand the needs of Idahoans with disabilities regarding:
· Housing
· Transportation
· Healthcare
· Education
· Job training
· Employment
· Recreation
