LEAD PARTNERS Independent Living Administration (ILA)

March 31, 2016

The Independent Living Administration (ILA) is a part of the Administration on Disabilities (AoD) within the Administration for Community Living (ACL). AoD works to increase the independence, productivity and community integration of individuals with disabilities.

Established by the Rehabilitation Act, the ILA works to establish and strengthen state and community networks of service providers in order to maximize the leadership, empowerment, independence, and productivity of people with disabilities.

The ILA oversees the Independent Living Services (ILS) and Centers for Independent Living (CIL), which both promote an independent living philosophy for individuals with disabilities. Additionally, the ILA manages programs that provide information and referral services to help those with paralysis and limb loss continue to live in their own homes and participate in their communities.
