55:14K-29. Housing finance funds
a. The agency may create and establish one or more special funds to be known as housing finance funds and may pay into such housing finance funds any moneys appropriated and made available by the State for the purposes of such funds, any proceeds of the sale of the bonds to the extent provided in the resolution of the agency authorizing the issuance thereof, the moneys directed to be transferred by the agency to such funds, and any other moneys which may be made available to the agency for the purposes of such funds from any other source or sources. The moneys held in or credited to any housing finance fund established under this act, except as hereinafter provided, shall be used solely for the payment of the principal of and interest on bonds of the agency secured by such housing finance fund, as the same mature, required payments to any sinking fund established for the amortization of such bonds (hereinafter referred to as "sinking fund payments" ), the purchase or redemption of such bonds of the agency or the payment of any redemption premium to be paid when such bonds are redeemed prior to maturity; but moneys in any such fund shall not be withdrawn therefrom at any time in such amount as would reduce the amount of such fund to less than the amount of principal (including sinking fund payments) and interest maturing and becoming due in the succeeding calendar year on the bonds of the agency then outstanding and secured by such housing finance fund (such amount being hereafter referred to as the "required minimum capital reserve" ), except for the purpose of paying principal and interest on the bonds of the agency secured by such housing finance fund maturing and becoming due and sinking funds payments for the payment of which other moneys of the agency are not available. Any income or interest earned by, or increment to, any such housing finance fund due to the investment thereof may be transferred to any other fund or account of the agency to the extent it does not reduce the amount of such housing finance fund below the required minimum capital reserve. In computing the amount of any housing finance fund for the purposes of this section, securities in which all or a portion of such housing finance fund are invested shall be valued at par if purchased at par or, if purchased at other than par, at amortized cost.
b. The agency shall not issue bonds secured by a housing finance fund at any time if the maximum amount of principal (including sinking fund payments) and interest maturing and becoming due in the succeeding calendar year on the bonds outstanding then to be issued and secured by a housing finance fund will exceed the amount of such housing finance fund at the time of issuance, unless the agency, at the time of issuance of such bonds, shall deposit in such housing finance fund from the proceeds of the bonds or other obligations so to be issued, or otherwise, an amount which together with the amount then in such housing finance fund, will be not less than the required minimum capital reserve.
c. The Housing Finance Fund established under the agency's existing General Housing Bond Resolution shall continue as a housing finance fund pursuant to the provisions of subsection a. of this section.
d. To assure the maintenance of the required minimum capital reserve in the housing finance funds, there shall be annually appropriated and paid to the agency for deposit in each of such funds, such sum, if any, as shall be certified by the chairman of the agency to the Governor as necessary to restore each of such funds to an amount equal to the required minimum capital reserve. The chairman shall annually, on or before December 1, make and deliver to the Governor his certificate stating the sum, if any, required to restore each of such funds to the amount aforesaid, and the sum or sums so certified shall be appropriated and paid to the agency during the then current State fiscal year.
