"SEC. 304. (a) There are authorized to be appropriated $5,000,000 each for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1970, and the next two fiscal years for making grants to each State, which has a State plan approved under this title, to pay such percentage, not in excess of 75 per centum, as the State agency (established or designated as provided in section 303(a)(1)) may provide, of the costs of planning, coordinating, and evaluating programs and activities related to the purposes of this Act and of administering the State i^lan approved under this title. Funds appropriated pursuant to the preceding sentence for the fiscal years ending June 30, 1970, and June 30, 1971, but not expended because a State did not have authority under State law to expend such funds, as determined by the Secretary pursuant to paragraph (4) of subsection (b) of this section, shall remain available as provided in such paragraph. " (b)(1) From the sum appropriated for a fiscal year under subsection (a), the Virgin Islands, (xuam, the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands, and American Samoa shall be allotted an amount equal to one-half of 1 per centum of such sum or $25,000, whichever is greater, and each other State shall be allotted an amount equal to 1 per centum of such sum. "(2) From the remainder of the sum so appropriated for a fiscal year each State shall be allotted an additional amount which bears the same ratio to such remainder as the population aged sixty-five or over in such State bears to the population aged sixty-five or over in all of the States, as determined by the Secretary on the basis of the most recent information available to him, including any relevant data furnished to him by the Department of Commerce. "(3) A State's allotment for a fiscal year under this section shall be equal to the sum of the amounts allotted to it under paragraphs (1) and (2); except that if such sum is for any State, other than the Virgin Islands, Guam, the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands, and American Samoa, less than $75,000 it shall be increased to that amount, the total of the increases thereby required being derived by proportionately reducing such sum for each of the remaining States (except the Virgin Islands, Guam, the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands, and American Samoa), but with such adjustments as may be necessary to prevent such sum for any of such remaining States from being reduced to less than $75,000. "(4) In any case in which a State does not have authority under State law to expend the full amount of its allotment under this subsection in the fiscal year ending June 30, 1970, the amount of such allotment which the Secretary determines the State did not have such authority to expend during a part of that fiscal year shall remain available to such State until June 30, 1971, subject to reallotment after June 30, 1970, in accordance with the provisions of subsection (c) of this section, except as provided by the following sentence. In any case in which a State does not have authority under State law to expend the full amount of its allotment under this subsection, including any amount available pursuant to the preceding sentence, in the fiscal year ending June 30, 1971, the amount of such allotment which the Secretary determines the State did not have such authority to expend during a part of that fiscal year shall remain available to such State until June 30, 1972, subject to reallotment after June 30, 1971, in accordance with the provisions of subsection (c) of this section. "(c) The amount of any allotment to a State under subsection (b) for any fiscal year which the Secretary determines will not be required
