Your input is requested by the Statewide Independent Living Council (SILC) in order to develop the next State Plan for Independent Living, covering years 2024-2026.  The SILC is a planning body that has the responsibility of identifying the independent living needs of Virginians with disabilities and monitoring the achievements of the goals and activities within the State Plan.

If you are a person with a disability(s), a parent of a child with a disability(s), caregiver of a person with a disability(s), please help the SILC identify the needs of Virginians with disabilities by completing the Needs Assessment survey at: 

English Survey

Spanish Survey


If you need an alternate format of the Needs Assessment, please contact your local Center for Independent Living OR the Administrator to the Statewide Independent Living Council, Lauren Roche, at (804) 663-7817. Completed paper Needs Assessments may be sent to:

For completed surveys to be considered in the 2024 – 2026 State Plan development, they must be received by August 31, 2022.  However, public input into the SILC’s planning efforts is welcome at any time.
