Listening Sessions to Develop the Statewide Independent Living Plan (SPIL)

Every three years, the Idaho State Independent Living Council (SILC) works with the Centers for Independent Living (CILs) and the Idaho Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired (ICBVI), to develop the State Plan for Independent Living (SPIL). The SPIL is a three-year plan that sets goals and guides plans for the delivery of independent living services, systemic advocacy, and public outreach and education.

Before we can develop a Plan, we need to learn more about what is important to Idahoans with disabilities and their families. In the coming months, we’ll be holding town meetings across our service area to hear from Idahoans with disabilities. We’re also asking people to take 10-20 minutes to complete the survey so we can learn more about their needs and what matters to them.

The survey is available in English and Spanish. Surveys in English and Spanish are also available in hard copy, large print and Braille. To print out and mail back a survey, the pdf is available in English and Spanish.
