Title: ●Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services Independent Living Programs 

Under title VII, part B of chapter 1 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, the Independent Living Services program is a state-administered formula grant program.  This program was known as the State Independent Living program (SILS) before being amended by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act’s (WIOA) amendments to the Rehabilitation Act in 2014.  Under title VII, part C of chapter 1 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, the Centers for Independent Living (CIL) program is a discretionary grant program.  The purpose of both the SILS and CIL programs is to promote a philosophy of independent living (IL), including a philosophy of consumer control, peer support, self-help, self-determination, equal access, and individual and system advocacy, in order to maximize the leadership, empowerment, independence, and productivity of individuals with significant disabilities, and to promote and maximize the integration and full inclusion of individuals with significant disabilities into the mainstream of American society. The Department will rescind its regulations relating to the SILS and CIL programs. We are taking this deregulatory action because Congress transferred these programs to the Department of Health and Human Services under the WIOA, section 491(b) of Pub. L. No. 113-128 (July 22, 2014).
