The Monitoring & Evaluation Committee meets quarterly to monitor the progress of Statewide Plan for Independent Living (SPIL) related projects and meets at year-end to work with a consultant to evaluate the State Plan.

Description of NYSILCs Evaluation Methods and Processes

NYSILC uses a variety of methods and processes to monitor the implementation and evaluate the effectiveness of the SPIL along with several other related requirements for the network.

NYSILC Needs Assessment Report

The New York State Independent Living Council, Inc. (NYSILC) Needs Assessment Committee (NAC), facilitated by consultant Alan Krieger of Krieger Solutions, is active the second year of each SPIL to identify needs important to the IL network and New Yorkers with disabilities. It will help guide input and need for the formulation and development of the next three-year Statewide Plan for Independent Living (SPIL).
