Arizona Statewide Independent Living Council
AZSILC promotes resources, opportunities, and experiences which empower people who have disabilities to live independently.
Arizona Statewide Independent Living Council (AZSILC) is one of 56 Statewide Independent Living Councils (SILCs), which are federally mandated under the Rehabilitation Act. There is one SILC in each state and US territory. AZSILC members are appointed by the Governor, and the Council is comprised of Arizonans who have diverse disabilities, as well as advocates for people who have disabilities from across the state.
The Council participates in developing, monitoring, and reviewing the triennial State Plan for Independent Living (SPIL), which is implemented by the AZSILC administrative team, in collaboration with the five Centers for Independent Living (CILs) in Arizona.
