(30 ILCS 707/5)
For the purposes of this Act, unless the context otherwise requires:
"Grant funds" means any public funds dispensed by a grantor agency to any person or entity for obligation, expenditure, or use by that person or entity for a specific purpose or purposes and any funds disbursed by the State Comptroller pursuant to an appropriation made by the General Assembly to a named entity or person. Funds disbursed in accordance with a fee for service purchase of care contract are not grant funds for purposes of this Act.
Neither the method by which funds are dispensed, whether by contract, agreement, grant subsidy, letter of credit, or any other method, nor the purpose for which the funds are used can change the character of funds which otherwise would be considered grant funds as defined in this Section.
"Grantee" means the person or entity which may use grant funds.
"Grantor agency" means a State agency that dispenses grant funds.
"State agency" means State-supported universities and colleges and any department, office, commission, board, or authority within the Executive Department, other than the Office of the Lieutenant Governor, the Office of the Attorney General, the Office of the Secretary of State, the Office of the Comptroller, or the Office of the Treasurer.
