The West Virginia Statewide Independent Living Council is recruiting nominees for membership on the Ron Yost Personal Assistance Services Board to fill vacancies on the board.
The Council is mandated by Section 18, Article 10L of the West Virginia Code to maintain a standing committee to serve as the consumer board to direct the Division of Rehabilitation Services in the implementation of this program. The Ron Yost Personal Assistance Services Program is a service provided through the State Plan for Independent Living, developed and implemented jointly with the Division of Rehabilitation Services.
Legislatively, the board is required to meet at least quarterly, but usually meets monthly to review applications for eligibility and to address policy and other governing issues for the program. Board members will be compensated for allowable expenses incurred as a result of active participation on the board.
You may wish to nominate yourself or another person (with their permission) for membership on this board. Individuals nominated must have a severe disability (a physical, mental, or sensory impairment that affects one or more major life activities), be dedicated to the development and growth of the Ron Yost Personal Assistance Services Program and committed to attending meetings.
