On November 22, 2009, Governor Quinn signed an executive order creating the Illinois Human Services Commission (HSC). It addressed issues such as the process for determining fair, adequate and timely reimbursement, efficient management of publicly-funded programs and services, and projections for future human services needs in Illinois.
By 2021, the work of the HSC had been largely superseded by the Social Services Advisory Council, and the Illinois Budgeting for Results Commission (BFRC) voted to disband the HSC in September 2021.
The following is historical information about the makeup and activities of the Human Services Commission prior to 2021:
The Commission was comprised of members with expertise in both the public and private sectors, including: two legislators from each of the four caucuses; chief administrators of eight of the State's major human service agencies; human service advocates and community leaders; and two cochairs designated by the Governor.
