Welcome to Indiana Statewide Independent Living Council

Indiana Statewide Independent Living Council (INSILC), was established by the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended. INSILC is a 501c3 non-profit, governor-appointed council, independent and autonomous from the state, federally-required to be led by a majority of individuals with disabilities from all regions of Indiana with different backgrounds and experiences tasked with promoting the philosophy of Independent Living.

INSILC believes people with disabilities should have the same civil rights, choices, options, and control over their lives as do people without disabilities.
