ACL Seeks Comments on Draft SILC Indicators of Minimum Compliance
The Workforce Innovation and Opportunities Act (WIOA) of 2014 requires the Administration for Community Living (ACL) to develop and publish indicators of minimum compliance for Statewide Independent Living Councils (SILCs).
The SILC indicators developed and approved by the SILC Congress and those developed and approved by the National Council on Independent Living (NCIL) were reviewed by ACL. We presented an initial draft of the SILC indicators of minimum compliance at the SILC Congress in January 2016. The current draftreflects comments received concerning appropriate indicators.
ACL is committed to seeking and obtaining public input throughout this process to ensure that the indicators of minimum compliance reflect the values and goals of the Independent Living community.
ACL is providing a public comment opportunity through August 15, 2016. Public comments may be sent to comments.SILCindicators@acl.
hhs.gov. All public comments received will be reviewed and will be made available on theACL website.
Once the SILC indicators of Minimum Compliance are final they will be published in the Federal Register.
