H.R. 3220

A BILL To strengthen the educational resources of our colleges and universities

and to provide financial assistance for students in post-secondary and higher education. Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That this Act may be cited as the “Higher Education Act of 1965”.

TITLE I-UNIVERSITY EXTENSION AND CONTINUING

EDUCATION APPROPRIATIONS AUTHORIZED

Sec. 101. For the purpose of assisting the people of the United States in the solution of community problems such as housing, poverty, government, recreation, employment, youth opportunities, transportation, health, and land use by enabling the Commissioner to make grants and contracts under this title to strengthen continuing education and extension methods and teaching, and the public service resources, of colleges and universities, there are authorized to be appropriated $25,000,000 for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1966, and such sums for each of the four succeeding fiscal years as may be necessary for such purpose.

ALLOTMENTS TO STATES

Sec. 102. (a) (1) From 80 per centum of the sums appropriated pursuant to section 101 for each fiscal year, the Commissioner shall allot $25,000 each to Guam, American Samoa, and the Virgin Islands and $100,000 to each of the other States, and he shall allot to each State an amount which bears the same ratio to the remainder of such 80 per centum of such sums as the population of the State bears to the population of all States.

(2) Twenty percent of the sums appropriated pursuant to section 101 shall be reserved by the Commissioner for grants and contracts for experimental projects and for supplemental grants pursuant to section 106.

(b) The amount of any State's allotment under subsection (a) for any fiscal year which the Commissioner determines will not be required for such fiscal year for carrying out the State plan (if any) approved under this title shall be available for reallotment from time to time, on such dates during such year as the Commissioner may fix, to other States in proportion to the original allotments to such States under such subsection for such year, but with such proportionate amount for any of such States being reduced to the extent it exceeds the sum the Commissioner estimates such State needs and will be able to use for such year for carrying out the State plan; and the total of such reductions shall be similarly reallotted among the States whose proportionate amounts were not so reduced. Any amount reallotted to a State under this subsection during a year from funds appropriated pursuant

for such year.

to section 101 shall be deemed part of its allotment under subsection (a)

(c) In accordance with regulations of the Commissioner, any State may file with him a request that a specified portion of its allotment under this title be added to the allotment of another State under this title for the purpose of meeting a portion of the Federal share of the cost of providing extension or continuing education services or activities under this title. If it is found by the Commissioner that the services or activities with respect to which the request is made would meet needs of the State making the request and that use of the specified portion of such State's allotment, as requested by it, would assist in carrying out the purposes of this title, such portion of such State's allotment shall be added to the allotment of the other State under this title to be used for the purpose referred to above.

(d) The population of a State and of all the States shall be determined by the Commissioner on the basis

of the most recent satisfactory data available from the Department of Commerce.

USES OF ALLOTTED FUNDS

Sec. 103. A State's allotment under section 102 may be used, in accordance with its State plan approved under section 104(b), to provide new, expanded, or improved extension and continuing education activities and services designed to assist, particularly through new and advanced approaches, in the solution of community problems through activities and services such as

(1) professional retraining and refresher programs for persons in professions such as architecture, engineering, law, medicine, pharmacy, science, social work, and teaching;

(2) training and consultative services to local, State, and Federal governments;

(3) training in leadership and in program planning for nonprofit voluntary associations and civic groups;

(4) special educational programs for adults with a view to increasing their opportunities for more productive employment and making them better able to meet their adult responsibilities;

(5) training and educational services relating to aging;

(6) training services related to labor education, management education, and employment opportunities;

(7) special educational programs for culturally disadvantaged adults;

(8) educational programs for women preparing to enter or reenter the labor market; and

(9) other training, demonstration, and public service programs.

STATE PLANS

Sec. 104. (a) Any State desiring to receive its allotment of Federal funds under this title shall designate or create a State agency or institution which has special qualifications with respect to solving community problems and which is broadly representative of institutions of higher education in the State which are competent to offer extension or continuing education activities and services, and shall submit to the Commissioner through the agency or institution so designated a State plan. If a State desires to designate for the purposes of this section an existing State agency or institution which does not meet these requirements, it may do so if the agency or institution takes such action as may be necessary to acquire such qualifications and assure participation of such institutions, or if it designates or creates a State advisory council which meets the requirements not met by the designated agency or institution to consult with the designated agency or institution in the preparation of the State plan. A State plan submitted under this title shall be in such detail as the Commissioner deems necessary and shall

(i) provide that the agency or institution so designated or created shall be the sole agency for administration of the plan or for supervision of the administration of the plan; and provide that such agency or institution shall consult with any State advisory council required to be created by this section with respect to policy matters arising in the administration of such plan;

(2) set forth a comprehensive, coordinated, and statewide program of extension and continuing education activities and services under which funds paid to the State (including funds paid to an institution pursuant to section 105(c)) under its allotments under section 102 will be expended solely for activities and services which meet the requirements of section 103 and which have been approved by the agency or institution administering the plan;

(3) set forth the policies and procedures to be followed in allocating Federal funds to institutions of higher education in the State, which policies and procedures shall insure that due consideration will be given

(A) to the relative capacity and willingness of particular institutions of higher education (whether public or private) to provide effective extension or continuing education activities and services designed to assist communities in solving community problems;

(B) to the availability of and need for extension and continuing education activities and services among the population within the State; and

(C) to the results of periodic evaluations of the activities and services carried out under this title in the light of information regarding current and anticipated community

problems in the State; (4) set forth policies and procedures designed to assure that Federal funds made available under this title will be so used as not to supplant State or local funds, or funds of institutions of higher education, but supplement them, and, to the extent practicable, increase the amounts of such funds that would in the absence of such Federal funds be made available for activities and services which meet the requirements of section 103;

(5) set forth such fiscal control and fund accounting procedures as may be necessary to assure proper disbursement of and accounting for Federal funds paid to the State (including such funds paid by the State or by the Commissioner to institutions of higher education) under this title; and
