State Plan for Independent Living

In order to receive Independent Living funds under Title VII, Chapter 1 of the federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, each state must develop a State Plan for Independent Living (SPIL). The current plan was approved and remains in effect through September 30, 2019.

The Independent Living Council of Wisconsin and Wisconsin’s 8 Independent Living Centers in cooperation with other partners develop the SPIL every three years. The plan addresses use of funds for the federal “State Independent Living Services” and Centers for Independent Living (CIL) programs. These programs are funded by various sources including funds authorized under Title VII of the Federal Rehabilitation Act and state funds provided through the Department of Health Services (DHS), Bureau of Aging and Disability Resources.

The Council and Centers developed a new state plan for 2017-19. After approval by the Council, the Centers and the DHS Bureau, we submitted the proposed plan to the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services – Independent Living Administration (ILA) on June 23, 2016. ILA approved the Plan by letter dated September 1, 2016.
