Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.

shall require that each application for such aid submitted by public agencies
or public clinics with respect to services to be provided by a municipality

consumers of services or representative of the general public. Within
planning and service areas designated by the Secretary where
more than one clinic or agency applies under this paragraph, each application

of the areas to be served by each clinic or agency.
The Secretary may authorize advance disbursements to any
clinic or agency that has been awarded a grant-in-aid, provided that the
Secretary shall, within 30 days before the making of such
disbursement, certify to the Comptroller that (a) the provider is
