Abstract

Over the past 20 years, the national network of centers for independent living has significantly advanced the cause of people with disabilities, and helped countless thousands of individuals with significant disabilities achieve healthy and independent lives. Yet, the residents of 40% of the nation’s counties - mostly rural counties - lack basic access to CILs. To achieve universal access to CIL services, we estimate an additional investment of approximately $71.2 million will be needed.
