(20 ILCS 1335/5)
The General Assembly finds that the implementation of a single, easy to use telephone number, 2-1-1, for public access to information and referral for health and human services and information about access to services after a natural or non-natural disaster will benefit the citizens of this State by providing easier access to available health and human services, by reducing inefficiencies in connecting people with the desired service providers, and by reducing duplication of efforts.
