ACL Seeks Comments on Independent Living Proposed Rule

As we announced last month, the Administration for Community Living (ACL) agreed to issue new sub-regulatory guidance related to state designation provisions in the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). This new guidance clarifies that the Designated State Entity’s (DSE) signature on the State Plan for Independent Living (SPIL) indicates their agreement to fulfill the duties as outlined in the plan – not their agreement to the plan’s content.

On Monday, ACL announced that the updated guidance was published in the Federal Register. The Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM) is now open for public comment through the Federal Register. Comments are due by January 15, 2015.

Read ACL’s full announcement for additional information.

The issuance of new guidance would not have been possible without the continued advocacy of NCIL members. Thank you for all of your hard work!
