The Idaho State Independent Living Council (SILC) is partnering with the Idaho Centers for Independent Living (CILs) to host public meetings across Idaho. The SILC and the CILs serve Idahoans across disabilities and lifespan.  The SILC and CILs are collecting information to develop a three-year (2024-2026) State Plan for Independent Living (SPIL) that addresses Independent Living needs across Idaho.  Attend and get your free Emergency Go Bag!The purpose of the meeting is to:

  • Help us understand how the community is serving people in regard to housing, transportation, healthcare, education, job training, employment, recreation, community access and any other areas impacting Idahoans with disabilities.

  • Provide an overview of the duties and responsibilities of the SILC, regarding the State Plan, systemic advocacy, education and other activities.
  • Provide an overview of the duties and responsibilities of the CILs and the core services they provide in our communities.
