Notwithstanding any provisions of Section 12020, 12220, and 12300 to 12307, inclusive, whenever by any act of Congress funds are provided as federal aid to education to the several states for apportionment or allocation to school districts or community college districts for the purposes set forth in this section, and such act of Congress does not require that it be administered in this state by a state officer or agency other than the State Allocation Board, such act, with respect to the funds herein mentioned, shall be administered and such funds shall be apportioned by the State Allocation Board under the Local Agency Allocation Act.
The funds to which this section shall apply are funds appropriated by Congress for (a) the purchase and improvement of school sites; or (b) the purchase of furniture and equipment; or (c) the planning and construction, reconstruction, repair, alteration of, and addition to, school buildings and incidental facilities.
The State Allocation Board shall by rule provide for securing the recommendations or approval of the Department of Education or the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges, as the case may be, as to the facilities to be provided.
Funds apportioned under this section shall be paid in accordance with the provisions of Section 12302 on claims submitted by the Director of General Services.
The State Allocation Board is hereby authorized to accept any such funds on behalf of the state, and to cooperate with the government of the United States or any agency or agencies thereof in the administration of the act of Congress and rules and regulations lawfully adopted thereunder.
