The National Council on Independent Living (NCIL) advances independent living and the rights of people with disabilities. NCIL envisions a world in which people with disabilities are valued equally and participate fully.
This week, the NCIL provided updates on the House of Representatives Continuing Resolution, the COVID-19 Relief Bill, and the SCOTUS.
Most programs, including the Independent Living program, are level funded. this means they will be funded at the same level as their Fiscal Year (FY) 2020 levels. The IL program was funded at $116,183,000 ($25,387,000 for Part B; $90,805,000 for Part C) for 2020. The final package also included the very short-term extension of the Money Follows the Person program and Spousal Impoverishment protections (which were set to expire on November 30, 2020, and now expire on December 11, 2020).
