Northern Regional Center for Independent Living (NRCIL) is a community-based disability rights and resource center. We were started in 1987 with a grant from the New York State Education Department, through the work of a grassroots group called Citizens United for the Removal of Barriers (CURB) and the Disabled Persons Action Organization. We are now part of a network of 37 Independent Living Centers in New York State and over 450 Centers across the nation. Read More About Our Agency

Where We Are Located

NRCIL started out as a small office in Watertown in 1987. In 1995 we also began offering services in Lowville before securing office space in 2000. We recently opened two small offices in Lyons Falls and Harrisville. With four offices between Jefferson and Lewis Counties, we are better able to provide our services to current and new consumers!
