State Plan for Independent Living - Community Survey 2022

The South Dakota Statewide Independent Living Council (SILC) is gathering input into the development of the next three-year State Plan for Independent Living. This state plan guides the delivery of “independent living services” available through funding from the US Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Community Living, Independent Living Administration.
 
Funding flows through the South Dakota Department of Human Services, Division of Rehabilitation Services, and the centers for independent living (CILs) in South Dakota. The two CILs in South Dakota are Independent Living Choices and Western Resources for Independent Living.  The CILs provide services to all 66 counties, including the nine Tribal Nations.

We invite you to complete this survey for yourself, or on behalf of a family member with a disability. These responses will help us learn what South Dakotans with significant disabilities need in order to live where, and with whom they choose, and fully participate in their communities. If you need assistance in completing the survey, please contact our staff at 605.494.3613 and they will be more than happy to assist you. 
 
By completing this survey, you will help us better understand the needs of South Dakotans with disabilities.

·      Individual and Systems Advocacy
·      Transition Assistance (related to youth leaving high school or people moving out of nursing homes or staying in their own homes with the right supports).
