(210 ILCS 65/25)
(from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 9025)
Issuance of licenses.
(a) All Supportive Residences shall be
licensed by the Department. The procedures for obtaining a valid license
are set forth in this Section.
(b) Application for a license shall be made on forms provided and in the
manner prescribed by the Department. There shall be no application fee.
(c) Upon receipt of an application filed in proper order, the Department
shall review the application and shall make an on-site evaluation of the
proposed Supportive Residence.
(d) The evaluation shall be conducted by a qualified surveyor
representing the Department.
(e) If the Department has determined on the basis of available
documentation and a preliminary on-site evaluation, if the Department deems
that such an evaluation is necessary, that the Supportive Residence is in
substantial compliance with the Act and its rules and regulations, it
shall issue a probationary license. This license shall be valid for a
period not to exceed 6 months from the date of issuance. Within
30 days before the expiration of the probationary license, a
qualified surveyor representing the Department shall conduct an on-site
final evaluation. If, at the time of the final evaluation, the Supportive
Residence is in substantial compliance with this Act, the Department shall
issue a regular license which replaces the probationary license.
(f) A regular license shall normally be valid for a one year period
from the date of issuance. The Director, however, may issue licenses or
renewals for a period of not less than 6 months nor more than 18 months in
order to distribute the expiration dates of the licenses throughout the
calendar year. A license is not transferable, but may be
issued for more than one facility.
(g) As a condition of the issuance or renewal of a license, the
applicant or licensee shall file a statement of ownership, which shall be
public information and which shall be available from the Department. The
statement of ownership shall include
the name, address, telephone number, occupation or business activity,
business address and business telephone number of the person or entity who
is the owner of the Supportive Residence and every person or entity who
owns the building in which the Supportive Residence is located, if other
than the owner; and, the address of any facility, wherever located, any
financial interest of which is owned by the applicant or licensee, if the
facility were required to be licensed if it were located in this State.
