State Plan for Independent Living Virtual Public Hearing

Disability Network Northern Michigan invites Michiganders with disabilities, family members, advocates, service providers and other interested parties to participate in a virtual public hearing hosted by the Michigan Statewide Independent Living Council to gather input on Michigan’s State Plan for Independent Living. The State Plan for Independent Living is the document which provides us with guidelines and a plan on how we will strengthen and expand Michigan’s independent living network. Michigan is required to have a State Plan for Independent Living in place in order to receive federal dollars for independent living services.

The Michigan Statewide Independent Living Council is soliciting input from the public, disability community and partners to determine what issues affecting the lives of Michiganders with disabilities are priority areas and to gather input on independent living services throughout the State of Michigan. Disability Network Northern Michigan will join in the virtual public hearing teleconference call on December 10, 2019, from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm during our Peer Advocacy Group. To learn more about our Peer Support services, click here.
