(This amendment provides $100,000 each year from the general fund to establish a satellite Center for Independent Living (CIL) in Loudoun County. The CILs are nonprofit, community resource and advocacy centers run by and for persons with disabilities. Currently, the ENDependence Center of Northern Virginia serves Loudoun County along with Arlington and Fairfax, and the Cities of Alexandria, Fairfax and Falls Church. However, the growth in Loudoun County is beginning to stretch resources and transportation for Loudoun County clients is a growing issue of concern. The need for a satellite CIL in Loudoun was supported in the 2004 Annual Report of the Virginia Disability Commission.)
