25 U.S. Code § 1616a–1 - Scholarship and Loan Repayment Recovery Fund
prev | next
There is established in the Treasury of the United States a fund to be known as the Indian Health Scholarship and Loan Repayment Recovery Fund (hereafter in this section referred to as the “Fund”). The Fund shall consist of such amounts as may be appropriated to the Fund under subsection (b) of this section. Amounts appropriated for the Fund shall remain available until expended.
(b) Authorization of appropriations
For each fiscal year, there is authorized to be appropriated to the Fund an amount equal to the sum of—
(1) the amount collected during the preceding fiscal year by the Federal Government pursuant to—
(A) the liability of individuals under subparagraph (A) or (B) of section 1613a (b)(5) of this title for the breach of contracts entered into under section 1613a of this title; and
(c) Use of funds
(1) Amounts in the Fund and available pursuant to appropriation Acts may be expended by the Secretary, acting through the Service, to make payments to an Indian tribe or tribal organization administering a health care program pursuant to a contract entered into under the Indian Self-Determination Act [25 U.S.C. 450f et seq.]—
(A) to which a scholarship recipient under section 1613a of this title or a loan repayment program participant under section 1616a of this title has been assigned to meet the obligated service requirements pursuant to  sections; and
(d) Investment of excess funds
(1) The Secretary of the Treasury shall invest such amounts of the Fund as such Secretary determines are not required to meet current withdrawals from the Fund. Such investments may be made only in interest-bearing obligations of the United States. For such purpose, such obligations may be acquired on original issue at the issue price, or by purchase of outstanding obligations at the market price.
 So in original. Probably should be “to such”.
