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 35/1) (from Ch. 91 1/2, par. 1101)
    Sec. 1. Purpose. The statewide development and implementation of local community support systems to serve the chronically mentally ill with emphasis on care and treatment of extended and/or repeated users of inpatient and/or other intensive mental health services such as day treatment, emergency and non-medical residential care shall be a priority for the Department of Human Services, hereinafter referred to as the Department, in community program funding. In order to achieve this goal, the Department shall develop and facilitate, in cooperation with community agencies serving the mentally ill, the implementation of appropriate plans providing guidance for the Department and community agencies in planning, securing, funding, client assessment, service system evaluation, technical assistance, and local level development of community support systems. In addition, the Department shall continue funding community support system pilot projects established pursuant to Section 16.2 of the Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Administrative Act for the duration of the established pilot project period, and shall give priority for continuing funding of such community support system program components of proven effectiveness at cessation of the pilot project period through the Department's regular grant-in-aid and purchase care resources.
