Council Information and Composition

The Idaho State Independent Living Council’s (SILC) mission is to promote the independent living philosophy for all Idahoans with disabilities: choice, self-determination and access for all. The Council is controlled and directed by Idahoans with disabilities.

The Council is made up of 17-24 volunteers who are regional representatives, a minimum of 51% of whom are people from across the disability spectrum who do not work for a state agency or a Center for Independent Living (CIL), as per Section 7(8)(B) of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended; family members of and service providers for people with disabilities, and  ex-officio members from the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, the Department of Health and Welfare – Medicaid, the Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired and the Idaho Commission on Aging.  Council membership is appointed by the Governor.
