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.

105 ILCS 230/5-20

    (105 ILCS 230/5-20)
    Sec. 5-20. Grant application; district facilities plan. School districts shall apply to the State Board of Education for school construction project grants and debt service grants. Districts filing grant applications shall submit to the State Board a district facilities plan that shall include, but not be limited to, an assessment of present and future district facility needs as required by present and anticipated educational programming, the availability of local financial resources including current revenues, fund balances, and unused bonding capacity, a fiscal plan for meeting present and anticipated debt service obligations, and a maintenance plan and schedule that contain necessary assurances that new, renovated, and existing facilities are being or will be properly maintained. If a district that applies for a school construction project grant has no unused bonding capacity or if its unused bonding capacity may be less than the portion of the cost of the proposed school construction project that the district would be required to finance with non-grant funds, the application and facilities plan submitted by the district shall set forth the estimated amount of the project's cost that the district proposes to finance by the issuance of bonds under subsection (n) of Section 19-1 of the School Code. The State Board of Education shall review and approve district facilities plans prior to issuing grant entitlements. Each district that receives a grant entitlement shall annually update its district facilities plan and submit the revised plan to the State Board for approval.
