19. a. The financing authority may make and contract to make loans to local units in accordance with and subject to the provisions of this act to finance all or any portion of the cost of a school facilities project which the local unit may lawfully undertake or acquire and for which the local unit is authorized by law to borrow money; or to refund obligations of the local unit which were issued to provide funds to pay for the cost of a school facilities project.

Notwithstanding the provisions of any other law to the contrary, the local unit obligations may be sold at private sale to the financing authority at any price, whether or not less than par value, and shall be subject to redemption prior to maturity at any times and at any prices as the financing authority and the local unit may agree. Each loan to a local unit and the local unit obligations issued to evidence the loan shall bear interest at a rate or rates per annum, including zero interest, and shall be repaid in whole or in part, as the financing authority and the local unit may agree, with the approval of the State Treasurer.
