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.

    (305 ILCS 5/6-1.3) (from Ch. 23, par. 6-1.3)
    Sec. 6-1.3. Utilization of aid available under other provisions of Code. The person must have been determined ineligible for aid under the federally funded programs to aid refugees and Articles III, IV or V. Nothing in this Section shall prevent the use of General Assistance funds to pay any portion of the costs of care and maintenance in a residential substance use disorder treatment program licensed by the Department of Human Services, or in a County Nursing Home, or in a private nursing home, retirement home or other facility for the care of the elderly, of a person otherwise eligible to receive General Assistance except for the provisions of this paragraph.
    A person otherwise eligible for aid under the federally funded programs to aid refugees or Articles III, IV or V who fails or refuses to comply with provisions of this Code or other laws, or rules and regulations of the Illinois Department, which would qualify him for aid under those programs or Articles, shall not receive General Assistance under this Article nor shall any of his dependents whose eligibility is contingent upon such compliance receive General Assistance.
    Persons and families who are ineligible for aid under Article IV due to having received benefits under Article IV for any maximum time limits set under the Illinois Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) Plan shall not be eligible for General Assistance under this Article unless the Illinois Department or the local governmental unit, by rule, specifies that those persons or families may be eligible.
