  • Proposed SPIL Amendment

On March 27, RSA gave NC notice that an amendment to the 2014-2016 SPIL is necessary to clarify how the state intends to distribute additional Part C funds that become available to the state. The amendment will govern distribution of $26,369 that recently became available, in addition to any future increase in Part C funds to the state that are insufficient to create a new CIL. The following amendment to Sec. 3.2 of the NC SPIL will be introduced and voted upon at NCSILC’s April 25 meeting in Burlington:

“In the event that additional Part C funds become available in excess of the required Cost-of-living increase (COLA), but such funds equal less than $250,000 , those funds will be distributed to the existing Part C CILs according to the population-based formula used to distribute other Part C funds.”

The full text of Sec. 3.2, including the proposed amendment italicized in brackets, follows: (pdf) SPIL Sec 3 2 with proposed amendment, (text) SPIL Sec 3 2 with proposed amendment

The North Carolina Statewide Independent Living Council (NCSILC)

SILC Staff Commitments

  • We promise to persons with disabilities that we will provide leadership in planning activities and advocacy vital to improving their ability to live independently and participate fully in society.
  • We promise to Centers for Independent Living that we will provide the training, research and comprehensive planning documents necessary to support the continued development of independent living services and Centers for Independent Living throughout NC.
  • We promise to decision-makers that we will provide authoritative, reliable information necessary to evaluate policy options and to guide the allocation of resources required to allow persons with disabilities to live independently.
  • We promise to the general public that we will pursue our mission in an open, honest and responsible manner, and that we will provide the public education necessary to ensure adequate independent living services for citizens with disabilities in NC.
