"(2) The entities referred to in paragraph (1) are— "(A) grantees under subsection (a), and other public and nonprofit private entities (other than children's hospitals) that provide primary health services, and substance abuse services, to a substantial number of homeless individuals; and "(B) public and nonprofit private children's hospitals that provide primary health services to a substantial number of such individuals. "(3)(A) The Secretary may not make a grant under paragraph (1) to a hospital unless the hospital agrees, with respect to the costs of providing services under such paragraph, to make available (directly or through donations from public or private entities) non-Federsil contributions toward such costs in an amount that is not less than $1 for each $1 of Federal funds provided in the grant. "(B) Non-Federal contributions required in subparagraph (A) may be in cash or in kind, fairly evaluated, including plant, equipment, or services. Amounts provided by the Federal Government, or services assisted or subsidized to any significant extent by the Federal Government, may not be included in determining the amount of such non-Federal contributions. "(4) The Secretary may not make a grant under paragraph (1) unless the applicant for the grant agrees that subsections (b)(3), (h), (i), and (j) will apply to the grant to the same extent and in the same manner as such subsections apply to any grant under subsection (a). For purposes of subsection (i)(l)(D) (including as applied to this subsection by the preceding sentence), mobile medical units shall be considered to be major medical equipment. "(5) The Secretary may not make a grant under paragraph (1) unless the applicant for the grant agrees to collect such data as the Secretary determines to be necessary for assessing the efficacy of services provided under paragraph (1) to homeless children.
