Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    Sec. 4.07. Home-delivered meals.
    (a) Every citizen of the State of Illinois who qualifies for home-delivered meals under the federal Older Americans Act shall be provided services, subject to appropriation. The Department shall file a report with the General Assembly and the Illinois Council on Aging by March 31 of the following fiscal year. The report shall include, but not be limited to, the following information: (i) estimates, by county, of citizens denied service due to insufficient funds during the preceding fiscal year and the potential impact on service delivery of any additional funds appropriated for the current fiscal year; (ii) geographic areas and special populations unserved and underserved in the preceding fiscal year; (iii) estimates of additional funds needed to permit the full funding of the program and the statewide provision of services in the next fiscal year, including staffing and equipment needed to prepare and deliver meals; (iv) recommendations for increasing the amount of federal funding captured for the program; (v) recommendations for serving unserved and underserved areas and special populations, to include rural areas, dietetic meals, weekend meals, and 2 or more meals per day; and (vi) any other information needed to assist the General Assembly and the Illinois Council on Aging in developing a plan to address unserved and underserved areas of the State.
    (b) Subject to appropriation, on an annual basis each recipient of home-delivered meals shall receive a fact sheet developed by the Department on Aging with a current list of toll-free numbers to access information on various health conditions, elder abuse, and programs for persons 60 years of age and older. The fact sheet shall be written in a language that the client understands, if possible. In addition, each recipient of home-delivered meals shall receive updates on any new program for which persons 60 years of age and older may be eligible.
