Family Support Program (FSP)

​The Family Support Program (FSP), formerly known as the Individual Care Grant program, provides access to intensive mental health services and supports to youth with a severe emotional disturbance.  The goal of the FSP is to support eligible youth and their families by strengthening family stability, improving clinical outcomes, and promoting community-based services. Questions regarding the FSP may be directed to HFS via phone at 217-557-1000, or via email at HFS.BBH@illinois.gov

The FSP operates pursuant to 89 Ill. Adm. Code 139, commonly referred to as “Rule 139.”  HFS is the state agency responsible for the FSP.  The program receives administrative and clinical support from eQHealth Solutions, Inc. (eQHealth), the HFS Quality Improvement Organization/Peer Review Organization (QIO/PRO)
Family Support Program Update

Public Act (P.A.) 101-0461 expands the age of eligibility for services, the development of additional services, and more in the Family Support Program (FSP). However, these changes will be developed over a period of time, as outlined in P.A. 101-0461, and will not be operational until the current FSP policies and rules (89IL Adm. Code 139) are amended, approved, and adopted by the Department. Until the new rules are adopted, the current requirements for the Family Support Program will be in effect and can be found at the link below:
