    Sec. 2310-200. Programs to expand access to primary care.
    (a) The Department shall establish a program to expand access to comprehensive primary care in medically underserved communities throughout Illinois. This program may include the provision of financial support and technical assistance to eligible community health centers. To be eligible for those grants, community health centers must meet requirements comparable to those enumerated in Sections 329 and 330 of the federal Public Health Service Act. In establishing its program, the Department shall avoid duplicating resources in areas already served by community health centers.
    (b) The Department may develop financing programs with the Illinois Finance Authority to carry out the purposes of the Civil Administrative Code of Illinois or any other Act that the Department is responsible for administering. The Department may transfer to the Illinois Finance Authority, into an account outside of the State treasury, any moneys it deems necessary from its accounts to establish bond reserve or credit enhancement escrow accounts, or loan or equipment leasing programs. The disposition of moneys at the conclusion of any such financing program shall be determined by an interagency agreement.
