Independent Living Network

Who is the Iowa Independent Living Network?

We collaborate with the CILs to develop a State Plan for Independent Living (SPIL). The SPIL document tells how the IL Network will improve services for individuals with disabilities over the next three years. The CILs, IVRS, and IDB then provide those services to people with disabilities (often called consumers).

Centers for Independent Living

The Centers for Independent Living (CILs), Iowa Vocational Rehabilitation Services (IVRS), and Iowa Department for the Blind (IDB) provide independent living services to Iowans with disabilities. The services provided assist Iowans with disabilities to live independently in the communities of their choice.

Currently, the Centers for Independent Living have funds to serve 35 counties in Iowa. To serve all 99 counties in Iowa, additional funding is required. The Iowa Department for the Blind and Iowa Vocational Rehabilitation Services can provide limited Independent Living Services anywhere in the state of Iowa.
