​What is the State Plan for Independent Living (SPIL)?

The State Plan for Independent Living (SPIL) is a required federal document that outlines goals and objectives for Oregon's Independent Living (IL) program, outreach plans, funding priorities, resource and staffing plans, collaboration and partnership activities, and information about the expansion of the network of service providers.

The State Plan is revised and resubmitted to Federal authorities for approval at least once every three years. 

How is the State Plan for Independent Living developed?

The goals and objectives of the State Plan are developed collaboratively by the SILC and Oregon’s Network of Centers for Independent Living, based on information identified through assessment of Independent Living service needs and consumer satisfaction surveys.

Surveys, focus groups and community forums are all possible methods for gathering the information necessary to assess statewide IL service needs. 

The public has opportunity to provide input as the State Plan is developed.
