The Children and Family Services Act is amended
by adding Section 5.46 as follows:
(20 ILCS 505/5.46 new)
Extended Family Support Pilot Program.
Department may consult with independent partners to review
Extended Family Support Program services and advise if
additional services are needed prior to the start of the pilot
program required under this Section. Beginning January 1,
2023, the Department shall implement a 3-year pilot program of
additional resources for families receiving Extended Family
Support Program services from the Department for the purpose
of supporting relative caregivers. These resources may
include, but are not limited to: (i) wraparound case
management services, (ii) home visiting services for
caregivers with children under the age of 5, and (iii) parent
mentors for caregivers with children over the age of 3.
The services for the Extended Family Support Program are
expanded given the program's inclusion in the Family First
Prevention Services Act's targeted populations. Other target
populations include intact families, pregnant and parenting
