Region 6: Survey of CILs on Their Knowledge and Capacity to Provide Training and TA on the ADA

Centers for Independent Living are consumer‑controlled, community‑based, cross‑disability organizations that are federally funded to provide an array of independent living services. The Southwest ADA Center’s parent organization, ILRU, provides training and technical assistance through its CIL-NET project, which is meant to make CILs more effective, able to fulfill their role as community advocates and change agents, and able to develop strong, consumer-responsive services. The study will leverage this relationship by surveying CILs on their capacity to provide consumers information about the ADA.

Investigators: Vinh Nguyen, Lex Frieden, and Richard Petty
