What is the State Plan for Independent Living (SPIL)?
The document describes Michigan’s State Independent Living Services / Centers for Independent Living (SILS/CIL) program and outlines plans for Fiscal Years (FYs) 2017-2019. It was jointly developed by the State Plan for Independent Living (SPIL) Partners, in consultation with CILs, their association (DN/M), and other partners.
The SPIL Partners include the Statewide Independent Living Council (SILC) and the Designated State Entity – Michigan Rehabilitation Services (MRS) as well as the Bureau of Services to Blind Persons (BSBP). As developed by the SPIL Partners, the SPIL sets the values, principles, and policy framework for the state’s SILS/CIL program. The SPIL partners, in consultation with Michigan’s 15 CILs, their association (DN/M), and other IL partners, provide ongoing direction for implementation of the SPIL and operation of the program.
