                provide, in whole or in part, funding, grants, or 
                assistance for, or with respect to the administration 
                of, any program of public assistance or services to

                voter registration forms in connection with 
                applications for service;

                    (b) assist each such State agency administering any 
                such program with the costs of implementation of the 
                Act, consistent with legal authority and the 
                availability of funds, and promptly indicate to each 
                State agency the extent to which such assistance will 
                be made available; and
                    (c) designate an office or staff to be available to

                of Defense is directed to work with the appropriate 
                State elections authorities in each State to develop 
                procedures for persons to apply to register to vote at 
                Armed Forces recruitment offices as required by section

                registration agency pursuant to section 7(a)(3)(B)(ii) 
                of the Act, shall: (a) agree to such a designation if 
                agreement is consistent with the department's, 
                agency's, or entity's legal authority and availability 
                of funds; and

                    (b) ensure that all of its offices that are located
