Primary Tasks

    Secondary Tasks

      The Iowa Statewide Independent Living Council is Seeking New Members.

      Are you a person with a disability who wants to get involved and make a difference? Do you have a family member with a disability, or do you work to improve life for people with disabilities? If so, please consider applying for the Iowa Statewide Independent Living Council (SILC).

      The Iowa SILC is seeking new members 18 and over to fill vacancies for terms beginning July 1, 2022. The Council seeks to maintain diversity of representation including disability, age, ethnicity, and life experiences. All appointments to the Council will be appointed by the Governor.

      What is the Iowa SILC? The Iowa SILC is a federally mandated council that works closely with its partners to develop a Statewide Plan for Independent Living (SPIL). The SPIL (or state plan) serves as a guide that includes the activities planned by the state to achieve its independent living objectives.

      How to apply: If you or someone you know would like to apply for membership on the Council, please apply online by April 24, 2022. We welcome you to share this notice with as many individuals as you wish. This information is also available on the Iowa SILC website and the Iowa SILC Facebook Page.

      This process can be lengthy and new members are not always appointed before the terms begin in July. We appreciate your patience. If you have questions or need further information or assistance, please feel free to contact us. Amy Robasse, MA, Executive Director, Iowa SILC.
