Abstract
Project Title: Path to Empowerment for Consumers with SCI

Brief Project Description:
NCIL intends to impact the lives of people with spinal cord injury by identifying five (5) to eight (8) Centers for Independent Living (CILs) that can best provide programs to enhance the quality of life for people with SCI. NCIL will invite over 200 member CILs to participate in an RFP process, with clear guidelines on how their intended programs must contribute to quality of life in the areas of independent living, employment, assistive technology, sports & recreation, and education. NCIL will select the CILs that best demonstrate the capacity and resources necessary to make the greatest impact for consumers with spinal cord injury. In addition, NCIL will ensure that CIL pass-through participants fulfill the Neilsen Foundation evaluation criteria including impact, innovation, and relevance to the area of focus on traumatic and chronic spinal cord injury; feasibility based on documented experience, expertise, available resources, and organizational commitment; sustainability of proposed project or program; collaboration and demonstration of meaningful community partnerships including the avoidance of duplication of services and demonstration of shared community resources; and clear project evaluation methods. NCIL will provide pass-through funding ranging from $10,000 to $25,000 to each CIL selected.

Expected Outcomes:
1) Create and expand programs at CILs for consumers with SCI
2) Improve quality of life of consumers with SCI that participate in the project
3) Increase the number of consumers with SCI that participate in CIL programs and services

Relevance to Neilson Foundation mission:
This project will empower individuals with SCI to live independently with greater emotional and physical well-being. Centers for Independent Living (CILs) are consumer controlled organizations that provide direct services to help people with disabilities live and thrive in the community. As community organizations run by and for people with disabilities, including people with SCI, CILs are perfectly positioned to offer services to enable individuals with SCI to live independently. It is our hope that this project will serve as a catalyst for CILs to connect with and maintain relationships with consumers with SCI and facilities that serve them.
