"SEC. 515.

Expanded energy production opportunities must maximize social and economic benefits while minimizing social and environmental costs to the regions experiencing increased energy development. In some regions, impacted by limited energy resources, severe problems disruptive of regional economies could result. The programs of the regional commissions provide an excellent framework for coordinating Federal, State, and local efforts toward (1) anticipating tHe effects of alternative energy policies and practices, (2) planning for accompanying growth and change so as to maximize social and economic benefits and minimize the social and environmental costs, and (3) implementing programs and projects carried out in the regions by Federal, State, or local government agencies so as to better meet the special problems generated in the regions by the Nation's energy needs and policies, including problems of transportation, housing, community facilities, and human services. "(b) Each regional commission is authorized to carry out energyrelated demonstration projects and programs within its regions including programs and projects addressing the social, economic, and environmental impact of energy development, requirements, and utilization. Grants shall be made only to those projects which are developed through regional planning designed to identify the effects of regional resource development, requirements, utilization, and impact. Each regional commission is authorized to carry out demonstration projects within its region in connection with the development and stimulation of indigenous art and crafts of the region. "(c) Not to exceed $5,000,000 of the funds apportioned to each regional commission under section 509 of this title shall be expended in any one fiscal year for the purpose of carrying out the energyrelated provisions of this section, and not to exceed $2,500,000 of such funds shall be expended in any one fiscal year for indigenous arts and crafts demonstrations.".
