This area is representative of Illinois' DDD service regions of North Central, Central and Southern.
Applicants must submit an application that contains the information outlined below. Each section must have a heading that corresponds to the headings listed below. If the applicant believes that the subject has been adequately addressed in another part of the application narrative, then provide the cross-reference to the appropriate part of the narrative. The narrative portion must follow the page guidelines and limits set for in each section and must be in the specified order below. Exceeding the prescribed page limits is grounds for automatic disqualification. See Part I.F. (Application Submission Requirements) for specifications about page and font size requirements.
Applications will be reviewed and evaluated using the criteria described in this section. The corresponding point values indicate the relative importance placed on review criterion. Points will be allocated based on the extent to which the application addresses each of the criteria listed. Applicants should address these criteria in their application materials, as they are the basis upon which competing applications will be judged during the objective review.
Additionally, for applicants proposing to provide 24-Hour Stabilization Services in both service areas, the application should clearly identify these as separate sections and should propose budget options for funding one or both of the service areas. It is imperative that an applicant who proposes to provide services in both service areas (Northern Illinois and Central/Southern Illinois) describe to what extent (if any) variable and fixed costs would change if the applicant's application is accepted for only one geographic area.
