The independent living philosophy incorporates the following principles: People with disabilities must have choice over acceptable options for living independently in the communities of their choice.
Acceptable options include accessible and affordable housing, accessible and adequate transportation, access to public participation in community life (architectural, physical, communication, social), and adequate support services to enable an individual to do or accomplish what non-disabled people do or accomplish.
The Independent Living Council of Wisconsin (ILCW) will hold public hearings to gather input from consumers regarding the development of the State of Wisconsin’s Independent Living Plan for 2021 – 2023, according to the Federal Statute 45 CFR § 1329.17 General Requirements for a State Plan.
