    2011-2013 Oregon State Plan for Independent Living

    (SPIL) Summary

    Mission It is the mission of Oregon’s Independent Living Services Program and the CIL programs to support the ability of Oregonians with disabilities to direct their lives, access their communities and fulfill their responsibilities as independently as possible.

SPIL Goals

    ; People with disabilities can access housing

    ; People with disabilities can access healthcare

    ; People with disabilities can access transportation

    ; People with disabilities have the necessary skills and are empowered to communicate their needs effectively

Primary Objective - Information & Resources

    People with disabilities and systems have access to needed information and resources, especially regarding access to housing, healthcare & transportation, as demonstrated by survey results showing:

    1. a 10% increase in the number of people with disabilities and service providers who report adequate access to the following types of information needed to maintain or improve the independence of people with disabilities: housing, healthcare and transportation.

    2. a 20% increase in the number of people with disabilities and service providers/systems staff who report accessing two new resources during a one year survey period, with regard to either housing, healthcare or transportation. Intermediate Objective 1 - Peer Support & Training

    People with disabilities & systems have access to peer supports and training, as

    demonstrated by survey results showing:

    1. a 50% increase of people with disabilities who indicate they have received information and support from a peer with a disability in the past six months, which they can utilize when attempting to achieve access to housing, healthcare &/or transportation.

    2. a 50% increase in service provider/systems staff who report receiving specific cross-training &/or service information from another service organization/program in the past year, which will allow them to give more effective information to individuals with disabilities needing access to housing, healthcare or transportation.

    Intermediate Objective 2 - Collaboration

     People with disabilities & service providers are collaborating to create more

    effective means for people with disabilities to access resources related to housing, healthcare and transportation, as demonstrated by survey results showing: 1. an 18% increase in people with disabilities who report that they have either participated in one (1) new collaborative activity with other people with disabilities or have acted as an advisor to a service organization, which is likely to improve the ability of people with disabilities to gain access to resources related to housing, healthcare or transportation.

    2. three (3) new service provider collaborations that include IL participants, started at the state level, related to the housing, healthcare or transportation needs of people with disabilities.

    Network Design Oregon’s Network of CILs consists of seven (7) Centers for Independent Living, including CORIL (Bend), EOCIL (Ontario, with Pendleton branch office), HASL (Grants Pass), ILR (Portland), LILA (Eugene), SPOKES (Klamath Falls) and UVDN (Roseburg). 14 of Oregon’s 36 counties are unserved

    by a CIL.

CIL Funding Priorities

    On-going Title VII, Part C Funds - Should additional ongoing Title VII, Part C

    funding become available during the course of this SPIL, the funds will be distributed to maintain the existing Part C grants at the current levels, plus cost of living adjustments, then distribute in priority order as follows: 1. Fund a new federal grant for a CIL to serve the counties of Baker, Gilliam,

    Grant, Harney, Malheur, Morrow, Umatilla, Union, Wallowa and Wheeler, if

    $200,000 minimum base funding is available. * Currently, a non C-funded CIL

    serves this area.

    2. Fund a new federal grant for a CIL to serve the counties of Lane, Linn,

    Benton and Lincoln if $200,000 minimum base funding is available. *Currently,

    a non C-funded CIL serves Lane County.

    3. Fund a new federal grant for a CIL to serve the counties of the counties of

    Marion, Polk and Yamhill, if $200,000 minimum base funding is available. 4. Fund a new federal grant for a CIL to serve one of the three, yet to be

    prioritized Service Areas of (A) Wasco, Hood River and Sherman; (B) Clatsop,

    Columbia and Tillamook; (C) Coos and Curry counties. *Determination of the

    priority among these areas is planned for this SPIL period.

    5. If additional Part C funding becomes available in an amount less than

    $200,000, the funds will be distributed in the following manner:

    A. Increase the smallest Part C award until it has reached a level equal to the

    next lowest Part C award.

    SPIL Summary - Page 2 of 4

    B. Increase each of the smallest Part C awards, equally, until they reach a

    level equal to the next lowest Part C award.

    C. Continue this pattern until all Part C funded CILs, excluding ILR, have

    equal Part C funding.

    On-going Title VII, Part B & State Funds (Designated for CIL Base Funding)

    After supplementing existing C funded CILs to achieve the state-determined minimum base funding level plus cost of living adjustments, and supplementing ILR to achieve the funding agreed to in the 2008-2010 SPIL (considering all funding sources), Part B and State funds will be distributed in priority order as follows:

    1. Fund EOCIL to $100,000, based on EOCIL being the longest existing non Part

    C funded CIL; its service area being the largest geographic area, and its

    having a track record of providing IL services and currently meeting the

    requirements to be listed in the Network of CILs. *This award is subject to

    the requirement that the agency be able to demonstrate that their funding

    year budget, combined with this award would provide for a minimum

    $200,000 budget.

    4. Fund LILA to $100,000, based on LILA having a track record of the provision

    of IL services and currently meeting the requirements to be listed in the

    Network of CILs. *This award is subject to the requirement that the agency

    be able to demonstrate that their funding year budget, combined with this

    award would provide for a minimum $200,000 budget.

    5. Fund EOCIL UP TO $200,000

    6. Fund LILA UP TO $200,000

    7. Fund CORIL, SPOKES, HASL, and UVdN up to the Minimum Base Funding

    Level of $250,000 (plus COLAs): The amount available will be divided equally

    between the eligible CILs.

    8. Remaining funds available shall be awarded to existing CIL(s), using a state

    administered competition, to expand services into areas currently unserved,

    as follows.

    #1 Priority: Marion, Polk and Yamhill Counties

    #2 Priority: One of the four, yet to be prioritized Service Areas of (A) Wasco,

    Hood River and Sherman; (B) Linn, Benton and Lincoln; (C) Clatsop, Columbia

    and Tillamook; (D) Coos and Curry counties. *Determination of the priority

    among these four areas is planned for this SPIL period.
