This document lists over 130 Illinois nonprofits waiting to receive payments of $1 million or more owed to them by the state. As Progress Illinois notes, "many of these agencies provide crucial services such as drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers, homeless and domestic violence shelters, and care for the developmentally disabled and mentally ill." The list, released by Illinois Partners for Human Services, counts about $490 million in state debt.
