What is the role of the SILC?

 

The Statewide Independent Living Council is supposed to solicit input from
people with disabilities across the state, advocate for systemic changes where
necessary, support the statewide network of centers for independent living,
then develop a plan on how to improve statewide programs and services that impact the lives of people with disabilities, and how to ensure that tax dollars
allocated for that purpose are spent appropriately.

Federal law requires SILCs not only be open to the public, but responsible
and accountable to people with disabilities, and willing to work with those
of us who represent the statewide network of Centers for Independent Living
who are the front lines, working with those individuals.

Everybody Counts has long been an advocate for significant changes
in the way that Indiana's statewide IL council (known as the Indiana
Council on Independent Living - ICOIL) operates. After years of effort,
we were successful in gaining a federal review of that council's operation.
For more information on the outcome, and current state of ICOIL, go to
our ICOIL page located
