Summary

  • The Federal Property and Administrative Services Act of 1949 is amended in order to authorize the Administrator to transfer any personal property under the control of any executive agency which has been determined to be surplus property to the State agency in each State designated under State law as the agency responsible for the fair and equitable distribution, through donation, of all property transferred. Regulations are set forth prohibiting Federal agencies from obtaining excess personal property for purposes of furnishing such property to grantees of such agencies.
  • Excess personal property acquired by a Federal agency pursuant to the authority of section 202 of the Federal Property and Administrative Services Act of 1949 (40 U.S.C. 483) and furnished to and held by a grantee of such agency prior to the effective date of this Act under grants made pursuant to programs established by law shall be regarded as surplus property. Title VI of the Federal Property and Administrative Services Act of 1949 is amended by adding after section 605 the following new section: Sex discrimination: No individual shall on the ground of sex be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity carried on or receiving Federal assistance under this Act.
