Consumer Input Survey for the State Plan for Independent Living 2022

The New Jersey Statewide Independent Living Council (SILC) is appointed by the Governor and charged with developing and monitoring the State Plan for Independent Living (SPIL).

The State Plan for Independent Living (SPIL) is a document that outlines the three-year plan to support and enhance New Jersey’s Independent Living Services and the network of Centers for Independent Living.  We are in the process of revising the SPIL.  As part of this process, we are asking people with disabilities for their input as to what topics are important to gain or maintain their independence in the community.

The information gathered from this survey will provide guidance in the development of the SPIL and will help to guide Independent Living  Services to meet the needs of people with disabilities.
 
Thank you for your time and assistance.
