What is NYSILC?
The New York State

consumer controlled organization. The council is composed of 23 appointees from
around the state, a majority of whom have disabilities, representing diverse
cultures and needs in the state. NYSILC is responsible for jointly developing,
monitoring and evaluating the 3-year Statewide Plan for Independent Living
(SPIL). Jointly NYSILC as state plan partners are New York State Education
Department/Office of Adult Career and Continuing Education Services-Vocational
Rehabilitation (ACCESS-VR) and the Office of Children and Family
Services/Commission for the Blind (CB).
Living Councils (SILCs) well established under Title VII of the Rehabilitation
Act of 1973, as amended: NYSILC conducts surveys, develops reports, and has an
active committee statewide that addresses significant issues failing New
Yorkers with disabilities.
council meetings are held quarterly in
Troy and are open to the public.
