(e) Development of plans of work and budgets by eligible institutions
Payment of funds to any State for programs authorized under section 2662 (a), (b), (c), and (d) of this title shall be contingent upon approval by the Secretary of a plan of work and budget for such programs and compliance with such regulations as the Secretary may issue under this subchapter.
