a. In order to carry out the purposes and provisions of this act, the agency, in addition to any powers granted to it elsewhere in this act, shall have the authority to form, purchase or assume control of one or more subsidiary corporations, in the manner and for the purposes set forth in this section.
b. The agency may form a subsidiary corporation by filing with the Secretary of State a certificate of incorporation, which may be amended from time to time and which shall set forth the name of the subsidiary corporation, its duration, the location of its principal office, the joint owners thereof, and the purposes of the corporation.
c. The directors of the subsidiary corporation shall be members or employees of the agency, who shall constitute at least a majority, and such other persons representing any joint owner or owners as may be provided for in the agreement in connection with the incorporation.
d. The subsidiary corporation shall have all the powers vested in the agency which the agency may delegate to it by terms of the agreement of incorporation, except that it shall not have power to contract indebtedness independently of the agency. The subsidiary corporation and any of its properties, functions and activities shall have all the privileges, immunities, tax exemptions and other exemptions as the agency's property, functions and activities. The subsidiary corporation shall also be subject to the restrictions and limitations to which the agency is subject. The subsidiary corporation shall be subject to suit as if it were the agency itself.
e. Whenever the State or any municipality, commission, public authority, agency, officer, department, board, or division is authorized and empowered for any purposes of this act to cooperate and enter into agreements with the agency or to grant any consent to the agency or to grant, convey, lease or otherwise transfer any property to the agency or to execute any document, the State or such municipality, commission, public authority, agency, officer, department, board, or division shall have the same authorization and power for any of such purposes to cooperate and enter into agreements with the subsidiary corporation and to grant consents to the subsidiary corporation and to grant, convey, lease or otherwise transfer property to the subsidiary corporation and to execute documents for the subsidiary corporation.
f. Among the powers that shall be granted to a subsidiary corporation established by agency, or which may be exercised by the agency itself, are:
(1) To act as receiver or interim owner of rental properties and in connection therewith to provide tenant education and training, with the goal of achieving cooperative or other private forms of resident ownership.
(2) To act as a housing service corporation to operate or complete the construction of agency-financed properties.
(3) To undertake acquisition, construction, rehabilitation and operation of housing and related activities on a demonstration or experimental basis.
(4) To participate as a co-owner or co-venturer in any activity financed by an eligible loan from the agency.
