For the next three years of operations such grants shall not exceed 75 per centum of such costs. The Federal contribution may be provided entirely from funds appropriated to carry out this section or in combination with funds provided under other Federal grant-in-aid programs for the operation of health related facilities and the provision of health and child development services, including title IV, parts A and B, of the Social Security Act.

No grants for operation of a demonstration health project shall be made after five years following the commencement of the initial grant for operation of the project. No such grants shall be made unless the Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare is satisfied that the operation of the project will be conducted under efficient management practices designed to obviate operating deficits. Notwithstanding section 104 of the Public Works and Economic Development Act of 1965 (79 Stat. 554; 42 U.S.C. 3134), a health-related facility constructed under title I of that Act may be a component of a demonstration health project eligible for operating grant assistance under this section.
