Short description: 
PUBLIC AID-FIRST YEAR AT HOME                                              

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends  the  Illinois  Public  Aid  Code.     Provides  that  the      
   Department  of  Human  Services   shall,   subject   to   a   specific      
   appropriation   for  this  purpose,  operate  a  First  Year  at  Home      
   Demonstration Program to provide funding for one parent of  a  newborn      
   infant  to stay at home to care for the child during the child's first      
   year rather than place the child in  out-of-home  care.     Sets  time      
   limits,  payment  limits, income eligibility limits, and certain prior      
   work requirements for receiving assistance.  Requires  the  Department      
   to  collect  certain  data  on  the  Program and issue a report to the      
   General Assembly.  Provides that the Demonstration Program  shall  end      
   on December 31, 2004.
