The Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) created an email account for people to find out the status for being selected off the PUNS list. Name, birthdate, and "please tell me where I am in getting selected off of PUNS" can be sent to DHS.DDD.PUNS@illinois.gov.
IMPORTANT REMINDER: DDD did away with the "emergency" and "critical" categories on the PUNS Waiting List in August 2018. Independent Service Coordination agencies (ISCs) were notified to stop designating individuals under those categories and instead to merge them into a new category simply called "seeking services". People now are listed either that way or as "planning for services", which means not actively seeking services at this time. Folks need to continue reaching out to their local ISC to get more information. I recommend that they "check-in" with their ISC every 6 months.
