In 2009, the Illinois Department of Labor's budget was reduced through a line item veto for Displaced Homemakers Assistance Act Grants due to the state budget deficit. Funding for Displaced Homemakers Assistance Act Grants is not included in the budget request.

​The Illinois Displaced Homemakers Program promotes economic self-sufficiency by offering easily-accessible job readiness services and life skills preparation to displaced homemakers who face numerous barriers to education, training, basic skills learning, and sustainable employment.
