Illinois Compiled Statutes

Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
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 Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

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.

    At the discretion of the Board of Higher Education grants may be made for a class of institution in any or all of the following forms:

capital expense based on the increase in the number of Illinois resident enrollees;

        (4) Program priority grants based on State residents
    
enrolled in eligible programs that address public demand for health services, workforce needs and shortages, and other programmatic priorities, such as sole service providers, academic needs, or industry standards. The Board of Higher Education may annually dedicate a portion of appropriated funds, not to exceed 10% of appropriations, to support program priority grants. In determining program priority areas, the Board of Higher Education shall annually consult with constituent institutions.
    In awarding grants to nursing schools and to hospital schools of nursing, the Board of Higher Education may also consider whether the nursing program is located in a certified nurse shortage area. For purposes of this Section "certified nurse shortage area" means an area certified by the Director of the Department of Public Health as a nurse shortage area based on the most reliable data available to the Director.
