PASILC Public Forums 2015

PA SILC“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) is providing opportunities to hear directly from you about what your life experiences are as Pennsylvanians with disabilities.

The State Plan for Independent Living (SPIL) uses money from the federal government to address independent living needs of people with disabilities. It is our responsibility to hear from the people to plan for the development of the SPIL.  It is your right as a person with a disability in the Commonwealth to be provided with this opportunity to give input.”
