Sec. 3024. Allotment to States

-STATUTE-

(a) In general

(1) From the sums appropriated under subsections (a) through (d)

of section 3023 of this title for each fiscal year, each State

shall be allotted an amount which bears the same ratio to such sums

as the population of older individuals in such State bears to the

population of older individuals in all States.

(2) In determining the amounts allotted to States from the sums

appropriated under section 3023 of this title for a fiscal year,

the Assistant Secretary shall first determine the amount allotted

to each State under paragraph (1) and then proportionately adjust

such amounts, if necessary, to meet the requirements of paragraph

(3).

(3)(A) No State shall be allotted less than 1/2 of 1 percent of

the sum appropriated for the fiscal year for which the

determination is made.

(B) Guam and the United States Virgin Islands shall each be

allotted not less than 1/4 of 1 percent of the sum appropriated

for the fiscal year for which the determination is made.

(C) American Samoa and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana

Islands shall each be allotted not less than 1/16 of 1 percent of

the sum appropriated for the fiscal year for which the

determination is made. For the purposes of the exception contained

in subparagraph (A) only, the term "State" does not include Guam,

American Samoa, the United States Virgin Islands, and the

Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.

(D) No State shall be allotted less than the total amount

allotted to the State for fiscal year 2000 and no State shall

receive a percentage increase above the fiscal year 2000 allotment

that is less than 20 percent of the percentage increase above the

fiscal year 2000 allotments for all of the States.

(4) The number of individuals aged 60 or older in any State and

in all States shall be determined by the Assistant Secretary on the

basis of the most recent data available from the Bureau of the

Census, and other reliable demographic data satisfactory to the

Assistant Secretary.

(5) State allotments for a fiscal year under this section shall

be proportionally reduced to the extent that appropriations may be

insufficient to provide the full allotments of the prior year.

(b) Unused funds

Whenever the Assistant Secretary determines that any amount

allotted to a State under part B or C of this subchapter, or

subpart I of part E of this subchapter, for a fiscal year under

this section will not be used by such State for carrying out the

purpose for which the allotment was made, the Assistant Secretary

shall make such allotment available for carrying out such purpose

to one or more other States to the extent the Assistant Secretary

determines that such other States will be able to use such

additional amount for carrying out such purpose. Any amount made

available to a State from an appropriation for a fiscal year in

accordance with the preceding sentence shall, for purposes of this

subchapter, be regarded as part of such State's allotment (as

determined under subsection (a) of this section) for such year, but

shall remain available until the end of the succeeding fiscal year.

(c) Withholding of funds; disbursement

If the Assistant Secretary finds that any State has failed to

qualify under the State plan requirements of section 3027 of this

title or the Assistant Secretary does not approve the funding

formula required under section 3025(a)(2)(C) of this title, the

Assistant Secretary shall withhold the allotment of funds to such

State referred to in subsection (a) of this section. The Assistant

Secretary shall disburse the funds so withheld directly to any

public or private nonprofit institution or organization, agency, or

political subdivision of such State submitting an approved plan

under section 3027 of this title, which includes an agreement that

any such payment shall be matched in the proportion determined

under subsection (d)(1)(D) of this section for such State, by funds

or in-kind resources from non-Federal sources.

(d) Costs of administration, ombudsman program, demonstration

projects, supportive services, senior centers and nutrition

services; payment and determination of non-Federal share

(1) From any State's allotment, after the application of section

3028(b) of this title, under this section for any fiscal year -

(A) such amount as the State agency determines, but not more

than 10 percent thereof, shall be available for paying such

percentage as the agency determines, but not more than 75

percent, of the cost of administration of area plans;

(B) such amount (excluding any amount attributable to funds

appropriated under section 3023(a)(3) of this title) as the State

agency determines to be adequate for conducting an effective

ombudsman program under section 3027(a)(9) of this title shall be

available for conducting such program;

(C) not less than $150,000 and not more than 4 percent of the

amount allotted to the State for carrying out part B of this

subchapter, shall be available for conducting outreach

demonstration projects under section 3058e of this title; and

(D) the remainder of such allotment shall be available to such

State only for paying such percentage as the State agency

determines, but not more than 85 percent of the cost of

supportive services, senior centers, and nutrition services under

this subchapter provided in the State as part of a comprehensive

and coordinated system in planning and service areas for which

there is an area plan approved by the State agency.

(2) The non-Federal share shall be in cash or in kind. In

determining the amount of the non-Federal share, the Assistant

Secretary may attribute fair market value to services and

facilities contributed from non-Federal sources.

particular attention to low-income minority individuals and

older individuals residing in rural areas, and include proposed

methods of carrying out the preference in the State plan;

(F) provide assurances that the State agency will require use

of outreach efforts described in section 3027(a)(16) of this

title; and

agencies on aging, for each planning and service area for

providing services funded under this subchapter to low-income

minority older individuals and older individuals residing in

rural areas;

(ii) provide an assurance that the State agency will

undertake specific program development, advocacy, and outreach

efforts focused on the needs of low-income minority older

individuals and older individuals residing in rural areas; and

(iii) provide a description of the efforts described in

(b) Planning and service area designated; Indian reservations;

redesignation; adjustment of State allotment; review by Assistant

Secretary; additional planning and service areas; right to first

refusal to units of local government; procedures and review of

boundaries

(1) In carrying out the requirement of subsection (a)(1) of this

section, the State may designate as a planning and service area any

unit of general purpose local government which has a population of

100,000 or more. In any case in which a unit of general purpose

local government makes application to the State agency under the

preceding sentence to be designated as a planning and service area,

the State agency shall, upon request, provide an opportunity for a

hearing to such unit of general purpose local government. A State

may designate as a planning and service area under subsection

(a)(1) of this section, any region within the State recognized for

purposes of areawide planning which includes one or more such units

of general purpose local government when the State determines that

the designation of such a regional planning and service area is

necessary for, and will enhance, the effective administration of

the programs authorized by this subchapter. The State may include

in any planning and service area designated under subsection (a)(1)

of this section such additional areas adjacent to the unit of

general purpose local government or regions so designated as the

State determines to be necessary for, and will enhance the

effective administration of the programs authorized by this

subchapter.

(2) The State is encouraged in carrying out the requirement of

subsection (a)(1) of this section to include the area covered by

the appropriate economic development district involved in any

planning and service area designated under subsection (a)(1) of

this section, and to include all portions of an Indian reservation

within a single planning and service area, if feasible.

(3) The chief executive officer of each State in which a planning

and service area crosses State boundaries, or in which an

interstate Indian reservation is located, may apply to the

Assistant Secretary to request redesignation as an interstate

planning and service area comprising the entire metropolitan area

or Indian reservation. If the Assistant Secretary approves such an

application, the Assistant Secretary shall adjust the State

allotments of the areas within the planning and service area in

which the interstate planning and service area is established to

reflect the number of older individuals within the area who will be

served by an interstate planning and service area not within the

State.

(4) Whenever a unit of general purpose local government, a

region, a metropolitan area or an Indian reservation is denied

designation under the provisions of subsection (a)(1) of this

section, such unit of general purpose local government, region,

metropolitan area, or Indian reservation may appeal the decision of

the State agency to the Assistant Secretary. The Assistant

Secretary shall afford such unit, region, metropolitan area, or

Indian reservation an opportunity for a hearing. In carrying out

the provisions of this paragraph, the Assistant Secretary may

approve the decision of the State agency, disapprove the decision

of the State agency and require the State agency to designate the

unit, region, area, or Indian reservation appealing the decision as

a planning and service area, or take such other action as the

Assistant Secretary deems appropriate.

(5)(A) A State which on or before October 1, 1980, had

designated, with the approval of the Assistant Secretary, a single

planning and service area covering all of the older individuals in

the State, in which the State agency was administering the area

plan, may after that date designate one or more additional planning

and service areas within the State to be administered by public or

private nonprofit agencies or organizations as area agencies on

aging, after considering the factors specified in subsection

(a)(1)(E) of this section. The State agency shall continue to

perform the functions of an area agency on aging for any area of

the State not included in a planning and service area for which an

area agency on aging has been designated.

(B) Whenever a State agency designates a new area agency on aging

after October 9, 1984, the State agency shall give the right to

first refusal to a unit of general purpose local government if (i)

such unit can meet the requirements of subsection (c) of this

section, and (ii) the boundaries of such a unit and the boundaries

of the area are reasonably contiguous.

(C)(i) A State agency shall establish and follow appropriate

procedures to provide due process to affected parties, if the State

agency initiates an action or proceeding to -

(I) revoke the designation of the area agency on aging under

subsection (a) of this section;

(II) designate an additional planning and service area in a

State;

(III) divide the State into different planning and services

(!1) areas; or

(IV) otherwise affect the boundaries of the planning and

service areas in the State.

(ii) The procedures described in clause (i) shall include

procedures for -

(I) providing notice of an action or proceeding described in

clause (i);

(II) documenting the need for the action or proceeding;

(III) conducting a public hearing for the action or proceeding;

(IV) involving area agencies on aging, service providers, and

older individuals in the action or proceeding; and

(V) allowing an appeal of the decision of the State agency in

the action or proceeding to the Assistant Secretary.

(iii) An adversely affected party involved in an action or

proceeding described in clause (i) may bring an appeal described in

clause (ii)(V) on the basis of -

(I) the facts and merits of the matter that is the subject of

the action or proceeding; or

(II) procedural grounds.

(iv) In deciding an appeal described in clause (ii)(V), the

Assistant Secretary may affirm or set aside the decision of the

State agency. If the Assistant Secretary sets aside the decision,

and the State agency has taken an action described in subclauses

(I) through (III) of clause (i), the State agency shall nullify the

action.

(c) Eligible State area agencies; development of area; preferred

area agency on aging designees

An area agency on aging designated under subsection (a) of this

section shall be -

(1) an established office of aging which is operating within a

planning and service area designated under subsection (a) of this

section;

(2) any office or agency of a unit of general purpose local

government, which is designated to function only for the purpose

of serving as an area agency on aging by the chief elected

official of such unit;

(3) any office or agency designated by the appropriate chief

elected officials of any combination of units of general purpose

local government to act only on behalf of such combination for

such purpose;

(4) any public or nonprofit private agency in a planning and

service area, or any separate organizational unit within such

agency, which is under the supervision or direction for this

purpose of the designated State agency and which can and will

engage only in the planning or provision of a broad range of

supportive services, or nutrition services within such planning

and service area; or

(5) in the case of a State specified in subsection (b)(5) of

this section, the State agency;

and shall provide assurance, determined adequate by the State

agency, that the area agency on aging will have the ability to

develop an area plan and to carry out, directly or through

contractual or other arrangements, a program in accordance with the

plan within the planning and service area. In designating an area

agency on aging within the planning and service area or within any

unit of general purpose local government designated as a planning

and service area the State shall give preference to an established

office on aging, unless the State agency finds that no such office

within the planning and service area will have the capacity to

carry out the area plan.

(d) Publication for review and comment; contents

The publication for review and comment required by paragraph

(2)(C) of subsection (a) of this section shall include -

(1) a descriptive statement of the formula's assumptions and

goals, and the application of the definitions of greatest

Each area agency on aging designated under section 3025(a)(2)(A)

of this title shall, in order to be approved by the State agency,

prepare and develop an area plan for a planning and service area

for a two-, three-, or four-year period determined by the State

(b) Approval by Assistant Secretary; waiver of requirements

(c) Notice and hearing prior to disapproval

(1) The Assistant Secretary shall not make a final determination

disapproving any State plan, or any modification thereof, or make a

(2) the State plan has been so changed that it no longer

complies substantially with the provisions of subsection (a) of

this section, or

(3) in the administration of the plan there is a failure to

comply substantially with any such provision of subsection (a) of

this section,

the Assistant Secretary shall notify such State agency that no

further payments from its allotments under section 3024 of this

title and section 3028 of this title will be made to the State (or,

in the Assistant Secretary's discretion, that further payments to

the State will be limited to projects under or portions of the

State plan not affected by such failure), until the Assistant

Secretary is satisfied that there will no longer be any failure to

comply. Until the Assistant Secretary is so satisfied, no further

payments shall be made to such State from its allotments under

section 3024 of this title and section 3028 of this title (or

payments shall be limited to projects under or portions of the

State plan not affected by such failure). The Assistant Secretary

shall, in accordance with regulations the Assistant Secretary shall

prescribe, disburse the funds so withheld directly to any public or

nonprofit private organization or agency or political subdivision

of such State submitting an approved plan in accordance with the

provisions of this section. Any such payment shall be matched in

the proportions specified in section 3024 of this title.

(e) Appeal

(1) A State which is dissatisfied with a final action of the

Assistant Secretary under subsection (b), (c), or (d) of this

section may appeal to the United States court of appeals for the

circuit in which the State is located, by filing a petition with

such court within 30 days after such final action. A copy of the

petition shall be forthwith transmitted by the clerk of the court

to the Assistant Secretary, or any officer designated by the

Assistant Secretary for such purpose. The Assistant Secretary

thereupon shall file in the court the record of the proceedings on

which the Assistant Secretary's action is based, as provided in

section 2112 of title 28.

(2) Upon the filing of such petition, the court shall have

jurisdiction to affirm the action of the Assistant Secretary or to

set it aside, in whole or in part, temporarily or permanently, but

until the filing of the record, the Assistant Secretary may modify

or set aside the Assistant Secretary's order. The findings of the

Assistant Secretary as to the facts, if supported by substantial

evidence, shall be conclusive, but the court, for good cause shown,

may remand the case to the Assistant Secretary to take further

evidence, and the Assistant Secretary shall, within 30 days, file

in the court the record of those further proceedings. Such new or

modified findings of fact shall likewise be conclusive if supported

by substantial evidence. The judgment of the court affirming or

setting aside, in whole or in part, any action of the Assistant

Secretary shall be final, subject to review by the Supreme Court of

the United States upon certiorari or certification as provided in

section 1254 of title 28.

(3) The commencement of proceedings under this subsection shall

not, unless so specifically ordered by the court, operate as a stay

of the Assistant Secretary's action.

(f) Confidentiality of information relating to legal assistance

Neither a State, nor a State agency, may require any provider of

legal assistance under this subchapter to reveal any information

that is protected by the attorney-client privilege.
