Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Public Aid Code. In provisions concerning the Department of Human Services' Health Local Food Incentives Program, expands the program to provide grants to farm stands, mobile markets, community-supported agriculture sites, grocery stores, and other direct food retailers that participate in the SNAP program (rather than providing grants to participating Illinois farmers markets and direct producer-to-consumer venues). Requires the Department to consult and cooperate with non-profit organizations to develop and implement rules to distribute grants under the program (rather than designating a single non-profit organization or agency to receive an annual $500,000 grant to be distributed to participating Illinois farmers markets and direct producer-to-consumer venues). Effective July 1, 2022.
