• PUNS- Prioritization of Urgency of Need for Services Program
    PUNS is a database that registers individuals who want or need Developmental Disability Waiver services (i.e. Community Integrated Living Arrangements, Home Based Supports, Child Group Homes) funded by the Illinois Department of Human Services/Division of Developmental Disabilities. As funding is available, individuals are selected from PUNS and invited to apply for DD Waiver services. PUNS has 2 categories: Seeking Services (category for people who currently need or desire support) and Planning for Services (category for people who do not currently want or need support but may in the future). PUNS selections are based on a person's cumulative length of time in the Seeking Services Category. As funding is available, individuals are selected from PUNS and invited to apply for DD Waiver services.
