Centers for Independent Living, many of them funded through the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation Services, within the Department of Labor & Workforce Development, are community-based, consumer-driven organizations that provide information and referral, peer counseling, skills training, advocacy and a variety of services to people with disabilities, based on individual needs.

STATEWIDE INDEPENDENT LIVING COUNCIL (SILC)
The New Jersey Statewide Independent Living Council (SILC) is a 17-member body appointed by the Governor which maximizes opportunities for people with disabilities through planning and advocacy.

The SILC is charged with the responsibility to:
  • Develop and submit, in conjunction with the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation and the Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired, the State Plan for Independent Living;
  • Monitor, review, and evaluate the implementation of the State Plan;
  • Coordinate activities with the State Rehabilitation Council;
  • Submit periodic reports to the Commissioner of the Rehabilitation Services Administration and keep all necessary records;
  • Ensure that all regularly scheduled meetings are open to the public and that sufficient advance notice is provided.
