(305 ILCS 22/30)
Distribution of moneys from Fund.
Subject to appropriations
made by the General Assembly, the Department may
moneys from the Good Samaritan Energy Trust Fund for the purpose of providing
assistance authorized under Section 25.
The Department, with the
and consent of the Low Income Energy Assistance Policy Advisory Council, shall
establish priorities for the distribution of moneys from the Good Samaritan
Fund to low-income consumers to enable them to pay gas or electric bill
order to have household gas or electric utility service connected. Low-income
consumers who are unable to have their service connected even with a LIHEAP
shall be given preference. The Department shall ensure that moneys donated for
the Fund (other than
for administrative expenses as authorized in Section 25) are distributed to
consumers who reside in the county from which those moneys were received.
