Quality of Life Endowment Fund

On October 11, 2007, PA-95-674 was signed into law, creating the Quality of Life Illinois Lottery game called “Red Ribbon Cash” or “Red Ribbon Bonus Bucks.” Net proceeds from the sale of these tickets are deposited into the Quality of Life Endowment Fund. The Illinois Department of Public Health, Office of Health Protection, uses the proceeds generated from the scratch-off tickets to grant funds to public and private entities with HIV/AIDS prevention, education and treatment programs that serve individuals at the highest risk for contracting HIV infection or developing AIDS. Grants awarded from the fund are intended to augment current and future state funding for the prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS and are not intended to replace that funding.

Grants funded by Quality of Life Ticket revenue are reviewed and approved by a special advisory board called the Quality of Life Board and the Illinois Department of Public Health. Posted below is the latest application for these funds.
