Townhall Discussion on Institutional Diversion

CIL-NET Presents… A National Teleconference & Webinar:

December 15, 2016; 3:00 – 4:00 p.m. Eastern

Register online or by using the printable registration form (PDF)


Keeping people out of institutions is a new required service of CILs as part of the new core services from WIOA. But the fact of the matter is that CILs have been keeping people out of nursing homes and other institutions for years. We’ve organized this townhall discussion as an opportunity for a peer discussion on how best to divert people from nursing homes and other institutions, but also how to record and report the good work CILs are already doing in this arena. We’ll facilitate the discussion with some key questions, but we hope you’ll sign-up and come ready to engage in this critical conversation.

Registration Fee: This event is free-of-charge.

Target Audience:

  • CIL Executive Directors, Program Managers, IL Specialists, and any other staff interested in the discussion on institutional diversion as a core service.

Presented by CIL-NET: A program of the IL-NET national training and technical assistance project for Centers for Independent Living (CIL-NET) and Statewide Independent Living Councils (SILC-NET). The IL-NET is operated by ILRU, Independent Living Research Utilization, in partnership with the National Council on Independent Living (NCIL) and the Association of Programs for Rural Independent Living (APRIL).
