The primary Duty of the SILC is jointly developing the State Plan for Independent Living (SPIL or state plan) with the CILs in the state, after public input from individuals with disabilities, other stakeholders, and all segments of the public. The SPIL serves as a blueprint that encompasses the activities planned by the state to achieve its specified independent living objectives. It reflects the state’s commitment to comply with all applicable statutory and regulatory requirements during the three years covered by the plan.
A SPIL must reflect the needs of individuals with significant disabilities in the state. To accurately describe the complexity of the challenges and barriers encountered both individually and at the systems level requires a thoughtful, organized approach.
