The CIL PPR is also used by ACL to design CIL training and technical assistance programs authorized by section 721 of the Act. New Requirements The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), enacted on July 22, 2014, added a new core service to the list of ‘‘independent living core services’’ that ACL funded Centers for Independent Living (CILs) are required to provide. Prior to WIOA, CILs were required to provide four core independent living services: (1) Information and referral services; (2) independent living skills training; (3) peer counseling, including crossdisability peer counseling; (4) and individual and systems advocacy. WIOA added a fifth core service for ‘‘transition services.’’ This new core service has three components. It requires CILs to: • Facilitate the transition of individuals with significant disabilities from nursing homes and other institutions to home- and communitybased residences, with the requisite supports and services; • Provide assistance to individuals with significant disabilities who are at risk of entering institutions so that the individuals remain in the community; and • Facilitate the transition of youth with significant disabilities, who were eligible for individualized education programs (IEPs) under Section 614(d) of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, and who have completed their secondary education or otherwise left school to post-secondary life. The new core services promote full access to community living, which is in keeping with the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Supreme Court ruling in Olmstead v. L.C., and subsequent legislation and regulations. These critical services also align with the core of ACL’s mission. Modifications to the performance measures were developed this year in response to these changes, which will require additional data to be submitted so ACL can report on activities related to the new requirement. The proposed reporting form may be found on the ACL Web site at: https://acl.gov/ Programs/AoD/ILA/Index.aspx#cil. The estimated hour burden per respondent for the CIL PPR (IL Part C) in 2017 will change from the 35 hours estimated in FY 2014 to 36.5 hours, an additional hour and a half due to the addition of the fifth core service area. The number of hours is multiplied by 356 CILs, resulting in a total estimated hour aggregate burden of 12,994 hours.
