The Kentucky Statewide Independent Living Council logo.The Statewide Independent Living Council, known simply as the SILC, is a federally mandated, Governor appointed council where a majority of our members are individuals with disabilities.

Our SILC is required to:

  • Develop, monitor and review a state plan, in conjunction with our State Department of Aging and Independent Living (DAIL), that addresses the independent needs in our state;
  • Develop and support a statewide network of Independent Living Centers, called CILs;
  • Submit periodic reports to DAIL, as well as coordinates activities with the State Rehabilitation Council; and
  • Ensure that all regularly scheduled meetings of the SILC are open to the public and provide reasonable accommodations when requested within a one week notice.
 State Plan for Independent Living
Our three year State Plan for Independent Living (SPIL) is designed in partnership with the Kentucky Department of Aging and Independent Living; and has overarching Goals to: 
  • Increase awareness of Independent Living Services to stakeholders; 
  • Increase the effectiveness of the SILC; 
  • Increase access to Independent Living services for Kentuckians with Disabilities; and  
  • Increase advocacy activities through education of stakeholders in order to increase access and integration.
