No other awards may be made under subsection (a) for such fiscal year, except as provided in paragraph (l)(A)(i)(II) and paragraphs (4) and (5). "(B) BASE AMOUNT.— In determining the amount of an award pursuant to subparagraph (A) for a State, the Secretary shall first determine an amount the Secretary considers appropriate for the State (referred to in this paragraph as the 'base amount'), except that such amount may not be greater than the minimum amount determined under subparagraph (D). "(C) INCREASE ON BASIS OF POPULATION. — After determining the base amount for a State under subparagraph (B), the Secretary shall increase the base amount by an amount equal to the product of— "(i) the amount appropriated under paragraph (l)(A)(i)(I) for the fiscal year, less an amount equal to the sum of all base amounts determined for the States under subparagraph (B), and less the amount, if any, reserved by the Secretary under paragraphs (4) and (5); and "(ii) subject to paragraph (4)(C), the percentage constituted by the ratio of an amount equal to the population of the State over an amount equal to the total population of the States (as indicated by the most recent data collected by the Bureau of the Census). "(D) MINIMUM AMOUNT.—Subject to the amount appropriated under paragraph (l)(A)(i)(I), an award pursuant to subparagraph (A) for a State shall be the greater of the base amount as increased under subparagraph (C), or the minimum amount under this subparagraph. The minimum amount under this subparagraph is— "(i) in the case of each of the several States, the District of Columbia, and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, an amount equal to the lesser of— "(I) $5,000,000; or "(II) if the amount appropriated under paragraph (l)(A)(i)(I) is less than $667,000,000, an amount equal to 0.75 percent of the amount appropriated under such paragraph, less the amount, if any, reserved by the Secretary under paragraphs (4) and (5); or "(ii) in the case of each of American Samoa, Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and the Virgin Islands, an amount determined by the Secretary to be appropriate, except that such amount may not exceed the amount determined under clause (i).
