About the Training

Who wouldn’t like to expand their services and their budget at the same time? If your CIL is willing to do its homework, a fee-for-service program could provide you with just that opportunity. In this two-part series on developing fee-for-service programs at centers for independent living, you’ll learn how you can research, build, and implement fee-for-service programs the right way. You’ll learn from a center that’s built several successful programs that have expanded and supported their core services. You can, too!
