Budget Passed; Human Services Agencies Forced to Compete for Funds

Last night, the Illinois General Assembly and Governor Quinn finally approved a budget for FY 2010, which only funds community agencies at 86% of FY 2009 levels.

The Governor and his agencies will now determine what programs will receive more and less than that percentage of funding. This means that human services agencies will be forced to fight with one another for their fair share of the human services budget.

The University of Chicago School of Law has posted further information about this.
