Written comments and input regarding the draft SPIL may be emailed / submitted to: ed@iowasilc.org.

Iowa SPIL is reviewed and revised not less than once every three years, to ensure the existence of appropriate planning, financial support and coordination, and other assistance to appropriately address, on a statewide and comprehensive basis, the needs in the State for:

  • The provision of State independent living services;
  • The development and support of a statewide network of centers for independent living;
  • Working relationships between programs providing independent living services and independent living centers, the vocational rehabilitation program established under Title I, and other programs providing services for individuals with disabilities.

The Iowa SILC is federally required to develop a three-year Iowa State Plan for Independent Living and monitor / evaluate the progress of its goals, objectives, and activities within the Plan.

To request a reasonable accommodation or a paper copy of the draft Iowa SPIL 2025-2027 please contact Krys Purscell, Iowa SILC Executive Director, at: ed@iowasilc.org
