E-mail this to a friendPrinter-Friendly Version

The Louisiana Statewide Independent Living Council (SILC) was established to support the efforts of our citizens with disabilities to live independently in the community of their choice.

Some of the specific duties of the Statewide Independent Living Council are:

  • Jointly develop a State Plan for Independent Living
  • Monitor, review, and evaluate implementation of the state plan
  • Develop strong positive partnerships with the Louisiana Rehabilitation Council and other disability community groups
  • Regularly report on our efforts to the federal government

All meetings of the SILC are open to the public and include time on the agenda for a Public Forum. For more information on our meetings, please contact our office.The Louisiana Statewide Independent Living Council (“SILC”) is currently looking for individuals involved in the disability community who are interested in serving on the Council.
