(305 ILCS 22/30)
Sec. 30. Distribution of moneys from Fund. Subject to appropriations made by the General Assembly, the Department may spend moneys from the Good Samaritan Energy Trust Fund for the purpose of providing assistance authorized under Section 25. The Department, with the advice and consent of the Low Income Energy Assistance Policy Advisory Council, shall establish priorities for the distribution of moneys from the Good Samaritan Energy Trust Fund to low-income consumers to enable them to pay gas or electric bill arrearages in order to have household gas or electric utility service connected. Low-income consumers who are unable to have their service connected even with a LIHEAP grant shall be given preference. The Department shall ensure that moneys donated for the Fund (other than moneys used for administrative expenses as authorized in Section 25) are distributed to low-income consumers who reside in the county from which those moneys were received.
