-HEAD-
    Sec. 3121. Findings and declarations
 
-STATUTE-
    (a) Findings
      Congress finds that -
        (1) while the economy of the United States is undergoing a
      sustained period of economic growth resulting in low unemployment
      and increasing incomes, there continue to be areas suffering
      economic distress in the form of high unemployment, low incomes,
      underemployment, and outmigration as well as areas facing sudden
      economic dislocations due to industrial restructuring and
      relocation, defense base closures and procurement cutbacks,
      certain Federal actions (including environmental requirements
      that result in the removal of economic activities from a
      locality), and natural disasters;
        (2) as the economy of the United States continues to grow,
      those distressed areas contain significant human and
      infrastructure resources that are underused;
        (3) expanding international trade and the increasing pace of
      technological innovation offer both a challenge and an
      opportunity to the distressed communities of the United States;
        (4) while economic development is an inherently local process,
      the Federal Government should work in partnership with public and
      private local, regional, and State organizations to ensure that
      existing resources are not wasted and all Americans have an
      opportunity to participate in the economic growth of the United
      States;
        (5) in order to avoid wasteful duplication of effort and to
      limit the burden on distressed communities, Federal, State, and
      local economic development activities should be better planned
      and coordinated and Federal program requirements should be
      simplified and made more consistent;
        (6) the goal of Federal economic development activities should
      be to work in partnership with local, regional, and State public
      and private organizations to support the development of private
      sector businesses and jobs in distressed communities;
        (7) Federal economic development efforts will be more effective
      if they are coordinated with, and build upon, the trade and
      technology programs of the United States; and
        (8) under this chapter, new employment opportunities should be
      created by developing and expanding new and existing public works
      and other facilities and resources rather than by merely
      transferring jobs from one area of the United States to another.
    (b) Declarations
      Congress declares that, in order to promote a strong and growing
    economy throughout the United States -
        (1) assistance under this chapter should be made available to
      both rural and urban distressed communities;
        (2) local communities should work in partnership with
      neighboring communities, the States, and the Federal Government
      to increase their capacity to develop and implement comprehensive
      economic development strategies to address existing, or deter
      impending, economic distress; and
        (3) whether suffering from long-term distress or a sudden
      dislocation, distressed communities should be encouraged to take
      advantage of the development opportunities afforded by
      technological innovation and expanding and newly opened global
      markets.

          (B) consistent with a comprehensive economic development
        strategy.
    (b) Supplementary grants
      (1) In general
        On the application of an eligible recipient, the Secretary may
      make a supplementary grant for a project for which the eligible
      recipient is eligible but, because of the eligible recipient's
      economic situation, for which the eligible recipient cannot
      provide the required non-Federal share.
      (2) Purposes of grants
        Supplementary grants under paragraph (1) may be made for
      purposes that shall include enabling eligible recipients to use -
          (A) designated Federal grant programs; and
          (B) direct grants authorized under this subchapter.
    (c) Requirements applicable to supplementary grants
      (1) Amount of supplementary grants
        Subject to paragraph (4), the amount of a supplementary grant
      under this subchapter for a project shall not exceed the
      applicable percentage of the cost of the project established by
      regulations promulgated by the Secretary, except that the
      non-Federal share of the cost of a project (including assumptions
      of debt) shall not be less than 20 percent.
      (2) Form of supplementary grants
        In accordance with such regulations as the Secretary may
      promulgate, the Secretary shall make supplementary grants by
      increasing the amounts of grants authorized under this subchapter
      or by the payment of funds made available under this chapter to
      the heads of the Federal agencies responsible for carrying out
      the applicable Federal programs.
      (3) Federal share limitations specified in other laws
        Notwithstanding any requirement as to the amount or source of
      non-Federal funds that may be applicable to a Federal program,
      funds provided under this section may be used to increase the
      Federal share for specific projects under the program that are
      carried out in areas described in section 3161(a) of this title
      above the Federal share of the cost of the project authorized by
      the law governing the program.
      (4) Lower non-Federal share
        (A) Indian tribes
          In the case of a grant to an Indian tribe, the Secretary may
        reduce the non-Federal share below the percentage specified in
        paragraph (1) or may waive the non-Federal share.
        (B) Certain States, political subdivisions, and nonprofit
            organizations
          In the case of a grant to a State, or a political subdivision
        of a State, that the Secretary determines has exhausted its
        effective taxing and borrowing capacity, or in the case of a
        grant to a nonprofit organization that the Secretary determines
        has exhausted its effective borrowing capacity, the Secretary
        may reduce the non-Federal share below the percentage specified
        in paragraph (1).

-STATUTE-
      In promulgating rules, regulations, and procedures for assistance
    under this subchapter, the Secretary shall ensure that -
        (1) the relative needs of eligible areas are given adequate
      consideration by the Secretary, as determined based on, among
      other relevant factors -
          (A) the severity of the rates of unemployment in the eligible
        areas and the duration of the unemployment;
          (B) the income levels and the extent of underemployment in
        eligible areas; and
          (C) the outmigration of population from eligible areas and
        the extent to which the outmigration is causing economic injury
        in the eligible areas; and
        (2) allocations of assistance under this subchapter are
      prioritized to ensure that the level of economic distress of an
      area, rather than a preference for a geographic area or a
      specific type of economic distress, is the primary factor in
      allocating the assistance.
