Those duties and responsibilities are described in 89 Ill. Adm. Code 334, Administration and Funding of Community Based Services to Youth.
b) Comprehensive, Community Based Services to Youth is a program funded by the Department which strives to integrate youth services on a local level into a more comprehensive, community based youth service system.
