Reinserts the provisions of the engrossed bill, with the following changes: Makes the establishment and implementation of the Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Pilot Program subject to appropriations. Provides that the program shall require (rather than allow) the Senior Services Center of Will County to designate a staff member as an intake coordinator for Will County (rather than designate an intake coordinator for Will County) who shall help connect grandparents raising grandchildren to existing relevant services (rather than relevant services). Requires the intake coordinator to maintain records regarding the number of families who received referrals, the specific services each family was referred to and received, and the frequency of calls and visits. Provides that the intake coordinator selected by the Senior Services Center of Will County (rather than by the Department on Aging) must be knowledgeable on certain State-operated programs. In a provision requiring the intake coordinator to be given the contact information for the designated point of contact for each State agency listed in the engrossed bill, provides that such information may be given within 14 days after the intake coordinator's selection by the Senior Services Center of Will County (rather than selection by the Department on Aging).
