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.

405 ILCS 30/4

    (405 ILCS 30/4) (from Ch. 91 1/2, par. 904)
    Sec. 4. Financing for community services.
    (a) The Department of Human Services is authorized to provide financial reimbursement to eligible private service providers, corporations, local government entities or voluntary associations for the provision of services to persons with mental illness, persons with a developmental disability, and persons with substance use disorders who are living in the community for the purpose of achieving the goals of this Act.
    The Department shall utilize the following funding mechanisms for community services:
        (1) Purchase of Care Contracts: services purchased on
a predetermined fee per unit of service basis from private providers or governmental entities. Fee per service rates are set by an established formula which covers some portion of personnel, supplies, and other allowable costs, and which makes some allowance for geographic variations in costs as well as for additional program components.
        (2) Grants: sums of money which the Department grants
to private providers or governmental entities pursuant to the grant recipient's agreement to provide certain services, as defined by departmental grant guidelines, to an approximate number of service recipients. Grant levels are set through consideration of personnel, supply and other allowable costs, as well as other funds available to the program.
        (3) Other Funding Arrangements: funding mechanisms
may be established on a pilot basis in order to examine the feasibility of alternative financing arrangements for the provision of community services.
    The Department shall establish and maintain an equitable system of payment which allows providers to improve persons with disabilities' capabilities for independence and reduces their reliance on State-operated services.
    For services classified as entitlement services under federal law or guidelines, caps may not be placed on the total amount of payment a provider may receive in a fiscal year and the Department shall not require that a portion of the payments due be made in a subsequent fiscal year based on a yearly payment cap.
    (b) (Blank).
    (c) (Blank).
    (d) (Blank).
    (e) The funding methodologies must reflect economic factors inherent in providing services and supports, recognize individual disability needs, and consider geographic differences, transportation costs, required staffing ratios, and mandates not currently funded.
    (f) In accepting Department funds, providers shall recognize their responsibility to be accountable to the Department and the State for the delivery of services which are consistent with the philosophies and goals of this Act and the rules and regulations promulgated under it.
