CHAPTER 77 - STATE TREASURER RELATING TO RECEIPT AND DISBURSEMENT OF FEDERAL GRANTS

AN ACT PROVIDING FOR THE RECEIPT AND DISBURSEMENT OF GRANTS OF MONEY MADE BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OR OTHERWISE.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the State of Delaware in General Assembly met:

Section 1. That all grants of money made by the Federal Government, or otherwise, to the State of Delaware, shall be payable to the State Treasurer, who shall deposit the same in the State Treasury in a special account to be known and designated as the "Federal Aid Account," and that any money so received from the Federal Government or otherwise for the use by any designated Board, Commission, Department, Agency or Officer, is hereby appropriated to such Board, Commission, Department, Agency or Officer, for the specific purpose for which said money was granted and received, and such money shall be paid out of said special account by the State Treasurer upon warrants executed by the said designated Board, Commission, Department; Agency or Officer, for the use designated, as aforesaid, without any further authority from the General Assembly.

Provided, nevertheless, that in the event that any specific grant of money is made by the Federal Government, or otherwise, for a specific purpose, which is under the direction of a particular board or commission subject to an approved plan, and the Federal Government or other granting authority, shall insist that such grant of money be deposited in a special account, instead of being lumped with other grants, in order that an immediate and accurate accounting can be made of all expenditures by the approved board or commission for the particular purpose under the particular approved plan, then, and in such event, the State Treasurer is hereby authorized to deposit such money in a special account, so designated and so separated from other accounts as to meet with the approval of the Federal Government, or other granting authority, and to be paid out as other grants of money made by the Federal Government or otherwise, as in this Act hereinbefore provided.

Provided, however, that nothing contained in this Act shall affect Federal Grants or Federal aid to the University of Delaware, the Agricultural Experimental Station, and the Division of Agricultural Extension of the University of Delaware.

Approved May 18, 1937.
