In accordance with Federal Statute the Governor of Connecticut appoints each member of our twenty-three member statewide council. The Council is charged by the United States Congress to advance the principles and philosophy of Independent Living for all citizens with disabilities. Federal Statute requires that at least fifty-one percent of the Council’s membership be comprised of persons with a disability. The Council, which is funded by both state and federal resources, collaborates with five Centers for Independent Living, located in the communities of Hartford, Norwich, Stratford, and Naugatuck, West Haven.
Action Alert!! Hello all—
Funding for Centers for Independent Living was eliminated from Governor Malloy’s FY 2016/2017 Biennial Budget!!!!
