Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Act on the Aging. In provisions concerning the powers and duties of the Department on Aging under the Act, requires the Department to work with workforce development providers through the federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act to establish and implement an affirmative action employment plan for the recruitment, hiring, training, and retraining of persons 60 or more years old for jobs for which their employment would not be precluded by law (rather than requiring the Department to make a grant to an institution of higher learning to study the feasibility of establishing and implementing an affirmative action employment plan for the recruitment, hiring, training, and retraining of persons 60 or more years old for jobs for which their employment would not be precluded by law). Requires the Department to conduct demonstration projects to identify additional ways to assist aging and minority senior citizens throughout the State (rather than requiring the Department to conduct a study of the feasibility of implementing the Senior Companion Program throughout the State). In a provision requiring the Department on Aging and the Department of Human Services to file a joint report with the Governor and the General Assembly, removes the requirement that the report be filed on or before September 30 of each year. Requires the Department on Aging and other specified agencies to submit an annual report on programs and services for minority senior citizens in the State to be filed with the Governor and the General Assembly within 12 months of the closing of the lapse period for the fiscal year included in the report.
