The ASHPDA will review and approve, or disapprove, each proposed use within the territory of federal funds:

(1) appropriated under the Public Health Services Act; the Community Mental Health Centers Act, §§ 409 and 410 of the Drug Abuse Office and Treatment Act, or the Comprehensive Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism Prevention, Treatment, and Rehabilitation Act of 1970 for grants, contracts, loans, or loan guarantees for the development, expansion, or support of health resources; and

(2) made available by the territory from an allotment to the territory under an act referred to in subsection (1) of this section for grants or contracts for the development, expansion, or support of health resources.

Appendix A contains a list of the proposed uses of federal funds currently subject to review. This list should not be considered to be exhaustive nor static, since funding agencies may from time to time identify on a case-by-case basis those special activities in the programs listed that are not subject to review and approval/disapproval, as well as those programs not listed that are subject to review and approval/disapproval. The list also indicates the role of other territorial and federal agencies in the review process. Appendix A is not a part of this code since the HHS Secretary may, from time to time, add or delete programs from the list.

The ASHPDA will review and comment only on any other application for federal grant funds not included in the list, if requested by the federal funding agency involved.
