Welcome To NJSILC!

The New Jersey Statewide Independent Living Council (SILC) is a 17-member body appointed by the Governor which maximizes opportunities for people with disabilities through planning and advocacy. The SILC is a separate entity, in, but not of, the New Jersey Department of Labor.

The SILC membership represents the interests of New Jersey’s cross disability population. By law, a majority of the Council are people with disabilities. Voting members include: advocates for people with disabilities, representatives from private businesses, disability-related organizations, and CIL directors. Non-voting ex officio members include representatives from: Division of Vocational Rehabilitation Services (DVRS); New Jersey Department of Human Services; Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired (CBVI) as well as representatives from other state agencies which serve people with disabilities.


Congratulations to the new NJSILC appointees!
