CILA Estimated Rate Calculator for Providers (xls)


If you require assistance or have questions regarding the CILA Estimated Rate Calculator, please call the Division of Developmental Disabilities at (217) 782-3398.

The CILA Estimated Rate Calculator will calculate an ESTIMATED basic CILA rate for any type of CILA. The CILA Estimated Rate Calculator will calculate estimated rates for:

  • 24 Hour Shift Staff,
  • Foster Care/Host Family,
  • Intermittent; and
  • Family Intermittent CILA.

This estimated rate is not an official rate. The CILA Estimated Rate Calculator only estimates CILA rates and does NOT in any way commit the DHS/DDD to funding any individual or funding any individual based on the estimated factors as entered on the CILA Estimated Rate Calculator.

Instructions for Using the CILA Estimated Rate Calculator
