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.

Priorities for projects.
In considering applications for grants under this Act, the Department shall give priority to projects that will provide the greatest benefit to the residents of the State, based upon criteria established by the Department in rules promulgated pursuant to this Act which reflect the useful life of existing facilities and improvements, address public health and safety needs, correct accessibility deficiencies, and reflect outdoor recreation needs and priorities, including handicap-accessible playground equipment, such as ramped, ground-level play features, accessible swings, wheelchair accessible tables, adjustable equipment, universally accessible swings, and transfer platforms, identified through the Department's Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP) Program. The Department shall prioritize projects that create parks universally designed to meet everyone's needs, ages, and mobility and where all equipment, and the park itself, is handicap-accessible over projects that would create parks where only some equipment, or only the park itself, is handicap-accessible.
