For the purposes of this Section 7.1, "Department" means the Department of Healthcare and Family Services. To assist families in seeking intensive community-based services or residential placement for children with mental illness, for whom
no appropriate care is available in State-operated facilities, the Department shall supplement the amount a family is able to pay,
as determined by the Department and the amount available from other sources,
provided the Department's share shall not exceed a uniform maximum rate to be
determined from time to time by the Department. The Department may exercise the authority under this Section as is necessary to implement the provisions of Section 5-5.23 of the Illinois Public Aid Code and to administer Individual Care Grants. The Department shall work collaboratively with stakeholders and family representatives in the implementation of this Section.
