About the Training

Is your agency working with the Statewide Independent Living Council (SILC) in your state? Is this new to you, or did you act in a similar role in the past? Whether your agency is new to Independent Living or has long experience, this training is important for you. The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act changed the role of the Designated State Entity (DSE), and some of the roles of the SILC as well. This presentation includes content for both SILCs and DSEs.
