Illinois State Budget Update - Act NOW

The State of Illinois is now into the second half of FY15 and the outlook for the state budget is alarming. Currently, projected community appropriations shortfalls for Dept of Developmental Disabilities and Dept of Mental Health are $70 million and $40 million respectively. Unless action is taken by our government leaders, community-based provider agencies will feel the impact of budget shortfalls in the forms of cuts and payment delays!

NOW is the time to act!  Please click on the links to the Senate and House below to find your legislator’s contact information, and make a call today!!.  Let them know about the support services you care about are in jeopardy because the projected community appropriations will not meet the essential services people are currently receiving, and that individuals and families could lose access to necessary supports if these shortfalls are not addressed.  Thank you for taking time to advocate!
