PIE Info: State Plan for Independent Living
WE WANT TO HEAR ABOUT LIFE EXPERIENCES OF PENNSYLVANIANS WITH DISABILITIES!
The Pennsylvania Statewide Independent Living Council (PA SILC), in partnership with the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR) is providing opportunities to hear directly from you about what your life experiences are as Pennsylvanians with disabilities. It is our responsibility to hear from the people to plan for the development of the State Plan for Independent Living (SPIL). It is your right as a person with a disability in the Commonwealth to be provided with this opportunity to give input. The SPIL uses funds from the federal government to address independent living needs of people with disabilities.
Topics we’d like to talk with you about include:
• Home and Community Based Services
• Support Services
• Other Issues YOU feel we need to address
The SILC selects several locations throughout the Commonwealth for consumer input. The locations are listed below. During these meetings, we want to hear your thoughts and concerns:
