NCIL Needs Your Support in 2015 – Help Us Ensure WIOA Is Done Right!

Dear Advocates,

2015 has been an exciting year for NCIL and the IL Movement. We have accomplished so much together. Our collective action convinced the Administration for Community Living to revise their interpretation of the approval process for the State Plan for Independent Living. WIOA regulations are nearly final and it’s important that we keep the pressure on. Your donation to NCIL will ensure our staff can continue to work closely with ACL to make sure the final regulations support Independent Living and consumer control!

Our small, dedicated staff can do a lot with a little. We work tirelessly and efficiently to make sure our members’ dues and donations are spent smartly. But we’re still $10,000 short of our fundraising goals for 2015. If each of our members gives just $10 before December 31st, we’ll meet our goal! Of course, if you can afford to give more, we encourage you to do so. NCIL is still understaffed and additional funds will enable us to hire policy staff to work on your policy priorities! After all, NCIL is your disability rights organization.

Please make a donation to NCIL today. If you are not able to make a donation, I hope you will join or renew your membership for 2016 if you have not already. Your support and participation keeps us going. Thank you!
