This part is applicable to surplus real property located within any State which is appropriate for assignment to, or which has been assigned to the Department for disposal for educational or public health purposes, as provided in section 203(k) of the act. $ 12.3 General policies.

(a) It is the policy of the Department to foster and assure maximum utilization of surplus real property for educational and public health purposes, including research.

(b) Transfers may be made only to States, their political subdivisions, and instrumentalities, tax-supported educational or public health institutions, and nonprofit educational or public health institutions which have been held exempt from taxation under section 101(6) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1939 (now substantially reenacted in section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954).

(c) Real property will be requested for assignment only when the Department has determined that the property is suitable and needed for public health or educational purposes. The amounts of both real and related personal property to be transferred shall not be excessive to normal operating requirements. Such property, except for transfers contemplated under $ 12.10 will not be requested for assignment unless it is needed at the time of application for educational or for public health purposes, including research, or unless it will be so needed within the immediate foreseeable future. When construction is contemplated, the initiation of construction of the major

functional facility in the approved program must begin within 18 months after the date of transfer. Construction shall be deemed to have been initiated when the transferee executes a contract providing a firm date in the reasonably near future for actual commencement of con. struction. The Department may, in its discretion, grant extensions of the 18month period where the transferee can factually demonstrate that it has exercised due diligence in attempting to initiate construction within the said period and that such construction will be initiated during the period of any such extension.

(d) Land may be requested for assignment for transfer in accordance with

12.10, for public tax-supported educational and public health purposes where, although there is no immediate need for the property, population trends, location, present facilities and plans for additional facilities justify immediate transfer to reasonably provide for future needs.

(e) Transfers will be made only when the proposed program is not in conflict with State or local zoning restrictions, building codes, or similar limitations.

(f) Only those activities devoted to academic, vocational or professional instruction, or organized and operated to promote and protect the public health, are eligible. Examples of such eligible activities are universities, colleges, junior colleges, junior or senior high schools, elementary schools or school systems, vocational or specialized schools, research activities, public libraries, and similar activities primarily educational in character, general and specialty hospitals, mental institutions, clinics, health sanitation activities (including water and sewer departments), facilities providing public health services, and similar activities devoted primarily to the protection and promotion of public health. The program of an institution eligible for a transfer must contemplate use of the property as an integral part of an activity of the kind above described. The activity must obtain such licenses for operations as may be required by State and local law.

(g) Use of the property applied for must be for a fundamental educational or public health purpose. Examples of such fundamental utilizations are classrooms, vocational shops, libraries, laboratories, auditoriums, gymnasiums, cafeterias, dormitories, faculty housing, infirmaries, recreational facilities, hospi
