Every three years Washington must write a new State Plan for Independent Living to show the federal government how funds will be spent. The plan includes goals and objectives for outreach, spending, resources, staffing, collaboration and partnership activities and ways to grow the network of service providers.
Time to write the new plan!
The Washington State Independent Living Council (WASILC) together with Washington’s Network of Centers for Independent Living (CILS) develop the goals and objectives based on needs assessment and consumer satisfaction surveys.

The Independent Living Network and Philosophy supports consumer control. This is the idea that people with disabilities are the best experts on their own needs. They deserve equal opportunity to decide how to live, work, and take part in their communities. Please take part in a survey, focus group or community forum to help us get the information we need to write a plan that reflects statewide IL service needs.
Here’s the link to the survey. Take it! Talk about it! Share it!
