Funds provided under this section shall not be used for the planning, acquisition, construction, rehabilitation, or repair of a building or facility.

If the Secretary establishes a matching requirement under paragraph (1), the Secretary shall retain an option to waive the requirement for an eligible institution for any fiscal year if the Secretary determines that the institution will be unlikely to meet the matching requirement for the fiscal year.
