        maintenance of the lines, facilities, or equipment in 
        paragraphs (1) through (3); or

        determines are necessary to meet the goal of the program.

Secretary of Energy may provide technical support through Department of 
Energy laboratories and facilities to the Navajo Nation to assist in 
achieving the goal of this program.
    (d) Annual Reports.--Not later than February 1, 2002 and for each
