How can you get involved?
The Ohio SILC relies on community input and feedback for our State Plan for Independent Living. Every three years a new plan is created that serves as a roadmap for all of the Independent Living Network which includes the Centers for Independent Living (make that a link to the page), the SILC (make that a link to the about us), and our State Partners.
