(110 ILCS 935/10) (from Ch. 144, par. 1460)
Sec. 10. Scholarship recipients who fail to fulfill the obligation described in subsection (d) of Section 3.07 of this Act shall pay to the Department a sum equal to 3 times the amount of the annual scholarship grant for each year the recipient fails to fulfill such obligation. A scholarship recipient who fails to fulfill the obligation described in subsection (d) of Section 3.07 shall have 30 days from the date on which that failure begins in which to enter into a contract with the Department that sets forth the manner in which that sum is required to be paid. If the contract is not entered into within that 30 day period or if the contract is entered into but the required payments are not made in the amounts and at the times provided in the contract, the scholarship recipient also shall be required to pay to the Department interest at the rate of 9% per annum on the amount of that sum remaining due and unpaid. The amounts paid to the Department under this Section shall be deposited into the Community Health Center Care Fund and shall be used by the Department to improve access to primary health care services as authorized by subsection (a) of Section 2310-200 of the Department of Public Health Powers and Duties Law (20 ILCS 2310/2310-200).
The Department may transfer to the Illinois Finance Authority, into an account outside the State treasury, moneys in the Community Health Center Care Fund as needed, but not to exceed an amount established, by rule, by the Department to establish a reserve or credit enhancement escrow account to support a financing program or a loan or equipment leasing program to provide moneys to support the purposes of subsection (a) of Section 2310-200 of the Department of Public Health Powers and Duties Law (20 ILCS 2310/2310-200). The disposition of moneys at the conclusion of any financing program under this Section shall be determined by an interagency agreement.
