Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Emancipation of Minors Act. Removes language pertaining to homeless minors from provisions governing: purpose and policy; jurisdiction; rights and responsibilities of an emancipated minor; petitions; and hearings. Repeals the definition of "homeless minor" and "youth transitional housing program". Amends the Children and Family Services Act. Provides that services provided by youth transitional housing programs may include a service assessment, individualized case management, and life skills training. Provides that a homeless minor is eligible if certain criteria are met. Provides that if a homeless minor voluntarily leaves or is dismissed from a youth transitional housing program prior to reaching the age of majority, the youth transitional housing program agency shall contact the comprehensive community based youth services agency that provided crisis intervention services to the eligible homeless minor to assist in finding an alternative placement for the minor. Provides that nothing in the new provisions shall be construed to require an eligible homeless minor to acquire the consent of a parent, guardian, or custodian to consent to a youth transitional housing program. Provides that an eligible homeless minor is deemed to have the legal capacity to consent to receiving housing and services from a licensed youth transitional housing program. Contains a statement of purpose.

 Fiscal Note (Dept. of Children & Family Services)
 These Transitional Living Programs receive funding from many sources (federal, state, local and private sources). They do not receive DCFS funding. They will serve homeless youth regardless of changes to this act. Therefore, there is no anticipated fiscal impact.

 Fiscal Note (Dept. of Human Services)
 No fiscal impact exists for the Department of Human Services. These services are already within the scope of the current Comprehensive Community-Based Youth Services (CCBYS) and Homeless Youth programs.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces a cross reference to the Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Code with a reference to the Juvenile Court Act of 1987. Provides that the eligibility criteria for youth transitional housing programs include a requirement that the minor does not require placement in a residential care facility. Provides that beginning January 1, 2019, and annually thereafter through January 1, 2024, the Department of Human Services shall submit annual reports to the General Assembly regarding homeless minors older than 16 years of age but less than 18 years of age referred to a youth transitional housing program for whom parental consent to enter the program is not obtained. Provides that the reports shall contain specified information.
