New Jersey Statewide Independent Living Council
Thank you for visiting the official website of the New Jersey Statewide Independent Living Council (SILC).
The New Jersey SILC is a 17-member body appointed by the Governor which maximizes opportunities for people with disabilities through planning and advocacy.
These roles were formalized in 1992 by amendments to the federal Rehabilitation Act. As a result, Governor Jim Florio transformed the former Independent Living Advisory Council into the SILC. The SILC was established as a separate entity, in, but not of, the New Jersey Department of Labor in 1993.
