Background - Chapter 1 of Title VII of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, provides financial assistance to States to provide, expand, and improve the provision of Independent Living (IL) services. For a State to participate in the programs under Chapter 1, it must submit an approvable State Plan to the Federal Administration on Community Living (ACL).

The proposed State Plan draft was developed jointly by the SILC and Centers for Independent Living, based on input from consumers, disability advocates, and community partners who participated in statewide public meetings in November 2015 or who completed statewide assessment surveys during the fall of 2015. A public meeting was held February 12-13, 2016 to review assessment results and gather additional input from stakeholders toward the development of goals for the 2017-19 SPIL.

The proposed State Plan, once approved, will be in effect October 1, 2016 through September 30, 2019.

Please forward this notice to your e-mail lists and others who may be interested.
