Any commitment issued or advance made by the commissioner and any contract based thereon shall, in addition to such other terms, covenants and conditions as the commissioner may require, provide that: (a) no change may be made in an urban renewal project assisted by a State capital grant, nor in the project cost, land use or amount or manner of local grants-in-aid thereof, without the prior written approval of the commissioner; (b) a State capital grant shall be in such amount as the commissioner, in his discretion, may deem necessary to assist the municipality or local public agency in discharging its obligations in connection with the project for which the grant is made. Except as hereinafter provided, no commitments or payments thereon of capital grants pursuant to this act shall exceed 1/2 the actual amount of local grants-in-aid which the municipality or local public agency agrees to make pursuant to any contract for aid from any department or agency of the United States and the payments pursuant to the commitment for such grant shall be made from time to time in such amounts as shall not exceed the actual cash grants-in-aid paid by the municipality or local public agency and the actual moneys expended by the municipality or local public agency for eligible noncash grants-in-aid, which payments or expenditures are not subject to reimbursement to the municipality or local public agency from some other source and are certified by the municipality or local public agency subject to audit by the commissioner. Notwithstanding the provisions of this section, the commissioner may make commitments and payments thereon up to 100% of the local grants-in-aid allocable to such projects or portions thereof as shall be used for or by institutions owned and operated by this State or through a public agency established by the State, or by a political subdivision of the State, for public uses including, but not limited to, schools, parks, open spaces and neighborhood centers; provided, that the commissioner may make commitments and payments thereon up to 100% of the local grants-in-aid allocable to such projects or portions thereof as shall be used for nonprofit moderate income housing, where the municipality wherein the project is located has granted a 15% in lieu of tax payment to the nonprofit housing sponsor for a period of time equal to the term of any mortgage in connection therewith, conditioned upon the agreement between the nonprofit housing sponsor and the governing body of the municipality that the nonprofit housing sponsor will make a payment of 3% of gross shelter rent to the State of New Jersey until such amount has been repaid as the commissioner shall determine, not to exceed 50% of the local grants-in-aid allocable to such projects or portions thereof as shall be used for such nonprofit housing; (c) no sale, lease or other disposition shall be made of real property located in an urban renewal project assisted by a State capital grant pursuant to this act without the prior written approval of the commissioner; (d) Any capital grant assistance pursuant to this act be paid and applied to retire and discharge obligations of the municipality or local public agency to the extent such obligations were incurred to defray the cost of local grants-in-aid, which costs are to be met out of any State capital grant pursuant to this act; (e) the governing body of the municipality or the local public agency agree to reimburse the State in cash for any payments of capital grants in excess of those permitted under this act or pursuant to the terms of any commitment or contract for any capital grant pursuant to this act, and to repay the State for any capital grant payments made, if the project is terminated by the municipality or local public agency without the consent of the commissioner; (f) as promptly as possible after completion of an urban renewal project assisted with a capital grant pursuant to this act, the municipality or local public agency shall file with the commissioner a detailed statement of the costs of completing said project.
