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.

405 ILCS 80/6-1

    (405 ILCS 80/6-1)
    Sec. 6-1. Community Residential Choices Program.
    (a) The purpose of this Article is to promote greater compatibility among individuals with developmental disabilities who live together by allowing individuals with developmental disabilities who meet either the emergency or critical need criteria of the Department of Human Services as defined under the Department's developmental disabilities cross-disability database (as required by Section 10-26 of the Department of Human Services Act), and who also meet the Department's developmental disabilities priority population criteria for residential services as defined in the Department's developmental disabilities Community Services Agreement and whose parents are over the age of 60, to choose to live together in a community-based residential program.
    (b) For purposes of this Article:
    "Community-based residential program" means one of a variety of living arrangements for persons with developmental disabilities, including existing settings such as community-integrated living arrangements, and may also include newly developed settings that are consistent with this definition.
    "Developmental disability" may include an autism spectrum disorder.
    (c) A person diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder may be assessed for eligibility for services under Home and Community-Based Services Waivers for persons with developmental disabilities without regard to whether that person is also diagnosed with an intellectual disability, so long as the person otherwise meets applicable level-of-care criteria under those waivers. This provision does not create any new entitlement to a service, program, or benefit, but shall not affect any entitlement to a service, program, or benefit created by any other law.
