Description

The Department of Human Services was charged with the task of convening an oversight board for the Redeploy Illinois Program.  The Redeploy Illinois Oversight Board (RIOB) identifies jurisdictions to participate in the Redeploy Illinois Program.  The board identifies resources to support on-going monitoring, administration and evaluation of the Redeploy Illinois Program, and to support training.  The RIOB is also responsible for developing a formula for reimbursement of local jurisdictions for local community-based services utilized in lieu of commitment to the Department of Juvenile Justice.  The Board also formulates a schedule of charges levied against local jurisdictions for commitments above the agreed upon limit in the approved plan.  On an annual basis, the RIOB prepares a report to the Governor and the General Assembly on the progress of the Redeploy Illinois Program.
