Such loans shall be made from the Vermont Jobs Fund established under subchapter 3 of this chapter. The Authority may provide for the repayment and redeposit of such loans as provided in this subchapter.

    (2) Take title by foreclosure to any eligible facility where such acquisition is necessary to protect any loan previously made by the Authority; pay all costs arising out of such foreclosure and acquisition from monies held in the Vermont Jobs Fund; and sell, transfer, and convey any such eligible facility to any responsible buyer. If the sale, transfer, and conveyance cannot be effected with reasonable promptness, the Authority may, in order to minimize financial losses and sustain employment, lease the eligible facility to a responsible tenant or tenants.

    (3) Purchase prior mortgages and make payments on prior mortgages on any eligible facility where the purchase or payment is necessary to protect any loan previously made by the Authority. In addition, the Authority may sell, transfer, convey, and assign any such prior mortgage. Monies used by the Authority in the purchase of any prior mortgages, or any payments thereon, shall be withdrawn from the Vermont Jobs Fund, and any monies derived from the sale of any prior mortgages shall be deposited by the Authority in the Vermont Jobs Fund.

    (4) Purchase and own personal property for the purpose of leasing such personal property under financing leases, which leases transfer the ownership of leased personal property to each lessee following the payment of all required lease payments as specified in each lease agreement.

    (5) Execute lease agreements pursuant to subdivision (4) of this section.

    (6) Provide loans and assistance under this subchapter for the planning, development, or improvement of an industrial park or an eligible project within an industrial park.
