May 8, 2019

Text from post and word bubbles 

The State Plan for Independent Living (SPIL) is a three-year plan based on community input and feedback. As a disability community member you are invited to share what you believe should be prioritized or continued to be prioritized in the SPIL.

The SPIL currently provides funding that allows Independent Living Centers across California to assist people with disabilities of all ages in transitioning out of institutions. Institutions can be nursing homes, skilled nursing facilities, hospitals, etc. The SPIL also provide funding for the Disability Organizing Network, which allow us to keep you informed, engaged and aware of opportunities that you may not otherwise hear about. The Disability Organizing Network also provides training, technical assistance and resources on all thing’s community organizing. These are two examples of what the SPIL supports. If you’d like to see these priorities continued or if you have other ideas on how the SPIL can support people with disabilities please participate in the SPIL meeting in-person or by phone.

Feel free to contact the State Independent Living Council office if you’d like to learn more, 1(866)866-7452.
