Omnibus Includes $12 Million Increase for Independent Living

On March 23, 2018, the President signed into law the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2018 that the House and Senate both passed the previous day. The $1.3 trillion omnibus spending package includes a $12 million increase for the Independent Living Program! This is a huge win for the Independent Living Program!
We would like to join NCIL and our fellow IL programs across the country in expressing our gratitude to the members of Congress who were instrumental in achieving this increase. In particular we would like to especially thank our very own Congresswoman from Hawaii, Representative Colleen Hanabusa, who led a strong effort in Congress for increased funding for the Independent Living Program and authored the “Dear Colleague” letter to her fellow Legislators, garnering 23 additional signatures.
