SILC Public Input Drop-In Sessions

The Statewide Independent Living Council (SILC) is in the process of creating its 2021-2023 State Plan for Independent Living (SPIL). The purpose of the SPIL is to describe how the state’s network of Independent Living (IL) programs and services will meet the independent living needs of persons with disabilities in the state. The plan must address how federal, state and other funds will be used within the state to develop and maintain IL programs.

The key ingredient to this plan is your input! In order to be sure that the SPIL reflects and properly responds to the needs of NH’s citizens with disabilities, we need to hear from you about what your goals are, what barriers you face, and what resources would best meet your needs.

For your convenience the SILC has scheduled the following public “drop-in” sessions to receive your input in person. Please come whenever you can within the time window and stay as long as you wish. Light refreshments will be available.
