Guiding Principles for Embedding Employment into Center for Independent Living (CIL) Core Services

The Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act (WIOA) and the 2016 final rule for Independent Living (IL) collectively provide clarification of definitions and processes to reflect the independent living philosophy that is integral to our workforce investment system with respect to fully aligning with our nation’s disability civil rights framework. WIOA included numerous statutory changes that affect IL programs, including the addition of new core services, shifts in the process of developing and adopting state plans and changes in the functions of the State Independent Living Council (SILC).
