I want to urge you to support and become a co-sponsor of House Bill 3858, the Re-Balancing Community Services Appropriation Bill.
The Chief Sponsor is Representative Sara Feigenholtz.
It is time to move away from institutional services in Illinois. We should be supporting the development of community services for individuals in Illinois as they transition out of institutions. House Bill 3858 is designed for that purpose.
HB 3858 appropriates $20,000,000 from the Department of Human Services Community Services Fund to the Department of Human Services for grants and administrative expenses associated with the Department’s rebalancing efforts and in support of the Department’s efforts to expand home and community-based services, including rebalancing and transition costs associated with compliance and consent decrees.

Please support and become a co-sponsor of HB 3858.
