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:

The Council shall –

  • Jointly develop the State Plan for Independent Living
  • Monitor, review, and evaluate implementation of the State Plan
  • Meet regularly, and ensure that such meetings of the Council are open to the public and sufficient advance notice of such meetings is provided
  • Submit periodic reports as the Federal government may reasonably request, and keep records for access to such records, as necessary to verify the information in such reports
  • Coordinate activities with other entities in the State that provide services similar to or complementary to IL (independent living) services, such as entities that facilitate the provision of or provide long-term community-based services and supports

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.
