Massachusetts Statewide Independent Living Council
State Plan for Independent Living
Every three years states are required to submit a State Plan for Independent Living (SPIL) to the Administration for Community Living
The purpose of the state plan is to describe how the state’s network of independent living programs and services will meet the independent living needs of persons with disabilities in the state for the next three years.
The plan must address how federal, state and other funds will be used within the state to develop and maintain an IL program.
State Plans for Independent Living are jointly developed by the SILC and the Centers for Independent Living in the state, after public input from individuals with disabilities.
