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.

20 ILCS 1605/21.11

    (20 ILCS 1605/21.11)
    Sec. 21.11. Scratch-off for homelessness prevention programs.
    (a) The Department shall offer a special instant scratch-off game to fund homelessness prevention programs. The game shall commence on July 1, 2019 or as soon thereafter, at the discretion of the Director, as is reasonably practical. The operation of the game shall be governed by this Act and any rules adopted by the Department.
    (b) The Homelessness Prevention Revenue Fund is created as a special fund in the State treasury. The net revenue from the scratch-off game to fund homelessness prevention programs shall be deposited into the Homelessness Prevention Revenue Fund. Subject to appropriation, moneys in the Fund shall be used by the Department of Human Services solely for grants to homelessness prevention and assistance projects under the Homelessness Prevention Act.
    As used in this subsection, "net revenue" means the total amount for which tickets have been sold less the sum of the amount paid out in the prizes and to retailers, and direct and estimated administrative expenses of the Department solely related to the scratch-off game under this Section.
    (c) During the time that tickets are sold for the scratch-off game to fund homelessness prevention programs, the Department shall not unreasonably diminish the efforts devoted to marketing any other instant scratch-off lottery game.
    (d) The Department may adopt any rules necessary to implement and administer the provisions of this Section.
    (e) Nothing in this Section shall be construed to affect any revenue that any Homelessness Prevention line item receives through the General Revenue Fund or the Illinois Affordable Housing Trust Fund.
