Centers and Councils — How does Independent Living work? Independent Living is more than a concept. It is a philosophy, a movement, and a national network of Centers for Independent Living. Each Statewide Independent Living Council works with the Centers and other partners in their state to collaborate in establishing and implementing a State Plan for Independent Living.

We get questions every day about compliance — what is required — and about best practices and creative ideas for this national IL Network. Join the conversation as we explore Independent Living through the questions you and others in the field are asking.  Let’s provide technical assistance and peer support to each other. Comments made by the field that provide technical assistance will be posted.
