What is NYSILC?

 The New York State Independent Living Council (NYSILC) is a not-for-profit, non-governmental, 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).
  Statewide Independent 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.
