Statewide Independent Living Council of Hawai'i (SILC) has council members that are appointed by the Governor. The majority of council members are persons with disabilities from communities statewide. The SILCI is a not for profit, non-Governmental, consumer controlled organization. The SILC works closely with Centers for Independent Living (CILs), the Designated State Entity (DSE) and consumers statewide to develop the three year State Plan for Independent Living (SPIL) as required by the Rehab Act of 1992, as amended. The council supports the independent living philosophy for everyone especially people with disabilities who expect equal access to employment, social, economic and political opportunities in their communities. The council also provides support and technical assistance to CILs in Hawai`i.
