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. 605-980. Smart cities grant program. Subject to appropriation, the Department may establish and administer a program to make grants to municipalities for urban preservation and redevelopment as well as green technology. The Department shall work in cooperation with local municipalities in order to provide funds to meet the municipalities' identified public infrastructure and urban improvement needs. The grant program shall be permissive and subject to appropriation by the General Assembly.
    "Identified public infrastructure and urban improvement needs" include plans adopted by the municipality that have the following elements: an assessment of all public facilities and services, including, but not limited to, roads and other transportation facilities, sewers, schools, parks and open space, and fire and police services. Any municipality that is approved for grant moneys under this Section must develop a 5-year plan for the replacement and expansion of existing public facilities or the construction of any new facilities that are required to meet expected growth and economic development. The plan shall be reviewed by the Department. The plan must include a projection of when and where those facilities will be required and an assessment of the anticipated costs for replacement, expansion, or construction of public facilities.
    Municipalities receiving grant moneys under this Section are encouraged to use local small businesses within the municipality whenever possible.
