$ 103.13 Public nature of funds.
The expenditures to be considered in computing Federal participation must be made from public funds.
(a) In addition to appropriated funds, such funds may include funds derived from donations by private organizations or individuals which are deposited in accordance with State or local law to the account of the State board or local educational agency without such conditions or restrictions on their use as would negate their public character.
(b) Tuition and fees may be collected from students enrolled in a course, at rates comparable to those charged by public educational authorities for similar courses to cover any portions of the cost of the course which are not claimed under the State plan. However, tuition and fees collected from students may not be used as State or local funds for the purpose of matching the Federal funds. § 103.14 Pro-rating.
In determining the amount of the Federal grant only the costs of carrying out the approved State plan can be considered. Where an expenditure is made for the benefit of this program and any other programs, whether vocational or not, the amount to be charged as a cost of carrying out the State plan under this title, shall not exceed the amount arrived at under a reasonable apportionment. 8 103.15 Effect of payments.
(a) Neither the approval of the State plan nor any payment to the State pursuant thereto shall be deemed to waive the right or duty of the Commissioner to withhold funds by reason of the failure of the State to observe, before or after such administrative action, any Federal requirements.
(b) The final amount to be paid for any period is determined on the basis of expenditures under the State plan with respect to which Federal financial participation is authorized. The state assumes responsibility for accounting for all payments made out of its allotment by making expenditures for authorized plan purposes.
