Be Heard & Share Your Life Experiences to develop a new Independent Living Plan (SPIL) for PA!
The Pennsylvania Statewide Independent Living Council (PA SILC) in partnership with the network of Centers for Independent Living (CILs) and the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR) are providing forums to hear directly from you about what your life experiences are as Pennsylvanians with disabilities.
The purpose of the forums is to hear directly from our peers on their needs to live independently in the community. Your comments will provide the substance used in the development of the next 3-year State Plan for Independent Living (SPIL) as well as guide our future advocacy and legislative efforts.
For accommodations at any of the forums, call the SILC office at 717-364-1732 Accommodations not guaranteed if not requested at least 2 weeks in advance
