In establishing the criteria, the department shall permit the assumption of an appropriate level of risk, maintain a reserve for losses and provide for the periodic monitoring of reserve adequacy. Loan repayments may be used by the department in any financially prudent manner consistent with fund goals. [1999 c.956 §8]
