Levels of Compliance with Federal Requirements in Independent Living Centers

Nosek MA, Jones SD, Zhu Y. Levels of compliance with federal requirements in independent living centers. Journal of Rehabilitation 1989;55(2):31-7.


A study of 163 independent living programs examined levels of compliance with key requirements of Title VII, the independent living provision of the 1978 Rehabilitation Act. Only 51% of programs receiving funds met requirements for consumer involvement in direction, management, and service delivery. There was no relationship between compliance and receipt of Title VII funds or amount of Title VII funds received. It was also shown that complying programs offer significantly more services and serve significantly more persons than non-complying programs. These findings have strong implications for federal policy and funding in the independent living area.
