Prioritization of Urgency of Need for Services – PUNS

  • As of July 1, 2019, Options & Advocacy for McHenry County no longer oversees the Community Access Coordination (CAC) program. The CAC program supported the enrollment and annual updates required to included in the PUNS database waitlist.
  • PUNS is a statewide database that tracks individuals who have indicated various types of support needs due to a developmental disability. It also serves as the state-wide waiting list the State of Illinois uses to select people for services.
  • PUNS can be completed for anyone in Illinois with a developmental disability who has an unmet service need anticipated in the next five years.  PUNS is for infants, children, adolescents, and adults.  
  • You can also get more information on PUNS from the Illinois Department of Human Services at: http://www.dd.illinois.gov/SignUp.cfm
