State Plan for Independent Living (SPIL)

States wishing to receive funding for independent living programs are required to submit a three-year SPIL to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Administration on Community Living (ACL). In Wisconsin, the Independent Living Council of Wisconsin (ILCW) and directors of the eight Independent Living Centers (ILCs) work together to develop the SPIL. ILCW is an independent entity responsible for monitoring, reviewing, and evaluating the implementation of the SPIL.


SPIL Amendment

In October 2022, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Community Living (ACL) extended the State Plan for Independent Living by one Federal Fiscal Year. The proposed changes and amendments reflect the additional year. ILCW has proposed amendments to the SPIL to extend the plan by one year. Additional changes are as follows:

  • Narratives changed to reflect updated information for Federal Fiscal Years 2023 and 2024.
  • Funding tables updated to include Federal Fiscal Years 2023 and 2024
  • Dates changed to include Federal Fiscal Year 2024.
  • Data Sources for Objective 3.3, Indicator 3.2, “Number of annual consumer barrier surveys completed” now includes:
    • Annual consumer barriers survey data (included before amendment.)
    • Wisconsin Coalition of Independent Living Centers (WCILC) quarterly reports (included before amendment.)
    • Number of Independent Living Center (ILC)/Statewide Independent Living Council (SILC) staff and board members engaged in systems advocacy (added for amendment.)
    • Number of consumers that identify advocacy goals in Independent Living Plans (ILPs) (added for amendment.)
  • North Country Independent Living name changed to indiGO
