critical services

(3) Conditions for assistance to private nonprofit facilities (A) In general The President may make contributions to a private nonprofit facility under paragraph (1)(B) only if— (i) the facility provides critical services (as defined by the President) in the event of a major disaster; or (ii) the owner or operator of the facility— (I) has applied for a disaster loan under section 636(b) of title 15 ; and (II) (aa) has been determined to be ineligible for such a loan; or (bb) has obtained such a loan in the maximum amount for which the Small Business Administration determines the facility is eligible. (B) Definition of critical services In this paragraph, the term “critical services” includes power, water (including water provided by an irrigation organization or facility), sewer, wastewater treatment, communications (including broadcast and telecommunications), education, and emergency medical care. (C) Religious facilities A church, synagogue, mosque, temple, or other house of worship, educational facility, or any other private nonprofit facility, shall be eligible for contributions under paragraph (1)(B), without regard to the religious character of the facility or the primary religious use of the facility. No house of worship, educational facility, or any other private nonprofit facility may be excluded from receiving contributions under paragraph (1)(B) because leadership or membership in the organization operating the house of worship is limited to persons who share a religious faith or practice.
