State Comprehensive Health Planning Agency - RG 417 | Illinois State Archives

Name: State Comprehensive Health Planning Agency - RG 417

Historical Note: In 1971 the State Comprehensive Health Planning Agency was created to administer state health planning functions and was designated as the authorized agency for receiving funds under federal legislation providing for grants to states for comprehensive health planning. Previous to this the Department of Public Health had assumed these responsibilities. Also created was a nine member State Comprehensive Health Planning Advisory Council made up of representatives of state and local agencies, nongovernmental organizations concerned with health, and representatives of consumers of health services. Its membership also reflected the socio-economic distribution of the state's population and included representatives of minority groups in compliance with federal guidelines. The agency, with the advice of the council, was charged with state health planning and execution of plans. It was to coordinate the health planning functions of all state agencies and local entities, both public and private. It also was to distribute state and federal funds to local planning and coordination agencies (P.A. 77-463, pp. 1019-1021). The agency was abolished in 1975 and replaced again by the Department of Public Health. The old council was replaced by a new twenty-five member Statewide Health Coordinating Council with representation to fulfill federal requirements (P.A. 79-939, pp. 2840-2841).
