Jesiel Meets with Residents at The Grove at the Lake

For too many years, facilities like The Grove have been wrongly promised more funding than the state could provide, being forced to either wait months for dollars to arrive or never receiving what they were promised. This type of uncertainty makes it nearly impossible for care providers, or any other entity promised state funding – like local governments, to effectively provide services.”

“To start to correct this problem, Illinois needs to balance the budget so our service providers can be img_3735certain the funding their promised will actually arrive,” Jesiel concluded.
