p. 4. How the funds reserved for innovation and expansion (I&E) activities were utilized

Current Narrative:

VR continued to support the Indiana Statewide Independent Living Council (INSILC) with I&E funds. INSILC continues to use funding to support a team of staff to assist them in carrying out their core functions and meet goals outlined in the State Plan for Independent Living (SPIL). INSILC members were also given opportunity to attend national conferences, and were reimbursed for their travel and related expenses for attendance at council meetings. VR has also maintained a small business and community engagement team who have a presence across Indiana to share resources and educate businesses about opportunities to employ individuals with disabilities. This team is led by a Director of Business and Community Engagement, and the efforts of this team continue to increase VR’s social media following each year, as well as increase the number of business partners through outreach and training to businesses and increased hiring opportunities for VR participants.
