    Sec. 5. Legislative findings and intent.
    (a) The General Assembly finds that despite State investments in health care programs, certain racial and ethnic populations in Illinois continue to have significantly poorer health outcomes when compared to non‑Hispanic whites. The General Assembly finds that local solutions to health care problems can have a dramatic and positive effect on the health status of these populations. Local governments and communities are best equipped to: identify the health education, health promotion, and disease prevention needs of the racial and ethnic populations in their communities; mobilize the community to address health outcome disparities; enlist and organize local public and private resources and faith‑based organizations to address these disparities; and evaluate the effectiveness of interventions.
    (b) The Illinois Department of Human Services has several initiatives to reduce racial and ethnic disparities in infant mortality and diabetes, and the Illinois Department of Public Health has several initiatives to address asthma; breast, cervical, prostate, and colorectal cancer; kidney disease; HIV/AIDS; hepatitis C; sexually transmitted diseases; adult and child immunizations; cardiovascular disease; and accidental injuries and violence.
    (c) It is therefore the intent of the General Assembly to provide funds within Illinois counties, in the form of "Reducing Racial and Ethnic Health Disparities: Closing the Gap" grants, to stimulate the development of community‑based and neighborhood‑based projects that will improve the health outcomes of racial and ethnic populations. Further, it is the intent of the General Assembly that these programs foster the development of coordinated, collaborative, and broad‑based participation by public and private entities and by faith‑based organizations. Finally, it is the intent of the General Assembly that the grant program function as a partnership between State and local governments, faith‑based organizations, and private‑sector health care providers, including managed care, voluntary health care resources, social service providers, and nontraditional partners.

    Sec. 15. Grant program.
    (a) Subject to appropriations for that purpose, the Department shall establish and administer a grant program to implement this Act.
    (b) The Department shall do the following:
        (1) Publicize the availability of funds and
     establish an application process for submitting a grant proposal.
        (2) Provide technical assistance and training,
     including a statewide meeting promoting best practice programs, as requested, to grant recipients.
        (3) Develop uniform data reporting requirements for
     the purpose of evaluating the performance of the grant recipients and demonstrating improved health outcomes.
        (4) Develop a monitoring process to evaluate
     progress toward meeting grant objectives.
        (5) Coordinate with the Illinois Department of Human
     Services and existing community‑based programs, such as chronic disease community intervention programs, cancer prevention and control programs, diabetes control programs, the Children's Health Insurance (KidCare) Program, the HIV/AIDS program, immunization programs, and other related programs at the State and local levels, to avoid duplication of effort and promote consistency.
    (c) The Office of Minority Health within the Department shall establish measurable outcomes to achieve the goal of reducing health disparities in the following priority areas: asthma; breast, cervical, prostate, and colorectal cancer screening; kidney disease; HIV/AIDS; hepatitis C; sexually transmitted diseases; adult and child immunizations; cardiovascular disease; and accidental injuries and violence.
     The Office of Minority Health shall enhance current data tools to ensure a statewide assessment of the risk behaviors associated with the health disparity priority areas identified in this subsection. To the extent feasible, the Office shall conduct the assessment so that the results may be compared to national data.
    (d) The Director may appoint an ad hoc advisory committee to: examine areas where public awareness, public education, research, and coordination regarding racial and ethnic health outcome disparities are lacking; consider access and transportation issues that contribute to health status disparities; and make recommendations for closing gaps in health outcomes and increasing the public's awareness and understanding of health disparities that exist between racial and ethnic populations.

    (c) In addition to the grants awarded under subsections (a) and (b), up to 20% of the funding for the grant program shall be dedicated to projects that address improving racial and ethnic health status within specific urban areas identified by the Department in rules.
    (d) Nothing in this Act prevents a person, entity, or organization within a county or group of counties from separately contracting for the provision of racial and ethnic health promotion, health awareness, and disease prevention services.
