(c) The allocation and award of funds shall be made upon application executed by the county’s district attorney and approved by its board of supervisors.  Funds disbursed under this chapter shall not supplant local funds that would, in the absence of the California Career Criminal Prosecution Program, be made available to support the prosecution of felony cases.  Funds available under this program shall not be subject to review as specified in Section 14780 of the Government Code .
