   Section  1.  Subdivision  1  of  section  1102  of the private housing
 finance law, as amended by chapter 199 of the laws of 2008,  is  amended
 to read as follows:
   1.  Within  the  limit  of  funds  available in the housing trust fund
 account, the corporation is hereby authorized to  enter  into  contracts
 with  eligible applicants for the furnishing by such applicants of hous-
 ing for persons of low income. Each such  contract  shall  provide  that
 eligible  applicants  rehabilitate  or construct one or more projects or
 convert one  or  more  nonresidential  properties.  Such  contracts  may
 provide  for payments, grants or loans by the corporation for the activ-
 ities to be carried out by the eligible applicant  under  the  contract.
 Such  contracts  shall  provide  that a private developer make an equity
 investment of the greater of (i) two and  one-half  percent  of  project
 costs  or (ii) five percent of project costs less grants which are to be
 applied to such costs. The foregoing shall not preclude a private devel-
 oper from making a greater equity investment. Any  payments,  grants  or
 loans made by the corporation outstanding at the time of resale shall be
 subject  to  repayment in whole or in part upon resale after termination
 of the regulatory period and as otherwise provided therein. Such  repay-
 ment  provisions  may  survive  the  end  of the regulatory period. Such
 contracts may provide that eligible applicants shall either (a)  perform
 activities  specified under the contract themselves or (b) act as admin-
