(1) bear interest at or below market rates or otherwise as may be specified therein;
(2) have a repayment term of not longer than 30 years;
(3) be subject to repayment commencing not later than five years after the facility financed with the proceeds of such loan has been completed or, in the case of a highway project, the facility has opened to traffic; and
(4) be made only after all federal environmental requirements applicable to the qualified project have been complied with and all federal environmental permits obtained.
