Abstract:States wishing to receive funding under the State Independent Living Services (SILS) and Centers for Independent Living (CIL) programs must submit an approvable three-year State Plan for Independent Living (SPIL) to the Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA). The purpose of these programs is to promote the independent living philosophy—based on consumer control, peer support, self-help, self-determination, equal access and individual and systems advocacy—to maximize the leadership, empowerment, independence and productivity of individuals with significant disabilities and to promote and maximize the integration and full inclusion of individuals with significant disabilities into the mainstream of American society. The SPIL encompasses the activities planned by the State to achieve its specified independent living objectives and reflects the State's commitment to comply with all applicable statutory and regulatory requirements during the three years covered by the plan.
