Preventing disruption in service at Illinois nonprofit agencies

One of Illinois Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka’s primary responsibilities is to pay the state’s bills. Given that duty, she has made it a priority to reach out to nonprofit agency vendors across the state to ensure that they do not slash services or shut their doors altogether due to state payment delays.

Topinka knows that the nonprofit sector provides essential services to folks who need them the most, including seniors, children and those with disabilities.

As the state’s bill backlog stacks up, Topinka’s staff prioritizes what must be paid statutorily and under specific time constraints.  She has instructed staff to make nonprofit payments one of the top priorities.
