State Plan for Independent Living is Looking for Feedback

We want to hear about life experiences of Pennsylvanians with disabilities for the State Plan for Independent Living!

The Pennsylvania Statewide Independent Living Council (PA SILC), in partnership with the network of Centers for Independent Living (CILs) and the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR) is providing opportunities to hear directly from you about what your life experiences are as Pennsylvanians with disabilities. The State Plan for Independent Living (SPIL) uses money from the federal government to address independent living needs of people with disabilities. It is our responsibility to hear from the people to plan for the development of the SPIL. It is your right to be provided with this opportunity to give input and have your voice heard.
