2014 State of Indiana Annual Action Plan

You are invited to complete a survey to inform the 2014 State of Indiana Annual Action Plan for Housing and Community Development and the upcoming Five-year Consolidated Plan.

The results of this survey will be used to inform the funding allocations for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnership funds (HOME), the Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) and Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) programs. These HUD-funded programs are administered by the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA) and the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority (IHCDA).

This final year of the 2010-2014 Consolidated Plan provides an opportunity to evaluate priorities and funding allocations from past planning periods?and lay the foundation for goals and strategies in the next five year Consolidated Planning period. In completing this survey, please consider how programming and funding has worked in past Action Plan years?and what you would like to see in future planning years.

If you have questions about the Consolidated Plan and Action Plan processes, please contact Kathleen Weissenberger at OCRA, You can access the survey using this link:

Feel free to circulate the survey link to other stakeholders! And note that the survey will close on April 30, 2014.

Welcome to Indiana Council on Independent Living

The Indiana Council on Independent Living, or ICOIL, was set up by federal and state law and is made up of people from different parts of Indiana.  The ICOIL members are also people of different backgrounds with different experiences.  It includes many people with disabilities and was formed to promote Independent Living and the philosophy of Independent Living that affects people with disabilities in Indiana.

ICOIL values the belief that people with disabilities should have the same civil rights, choices, options, and control over choices in their lives as do people without disabilities.  The Council does this through state planning to develop and expand independent living services and the independent living philosophy throughout the state.

The Council hopes this website provides useful information about ICOIL and Independent Living in Indiana.
