The Rhode Island Statewide Independent Living Council (RI SILC) is currently looking for new members. The RI SILC is responsible for developing the state independent living plan.
This plan identifies the areas where the federal dollars promoting independent living for people with disabilities are spent and what type of activities and training the State Independent Living Center engages in. Meetings are typically conducted 4 to 6 times a year and run between 90 minutes to 2 hours.
Individuals who identify as someone with a disability are strongly encouraged to consider joining the council. It is essential that those with disabilities have a voice in the development of services to increase independent living.
