The authority may acquire by purchase, or otherwise, as

project.

All governmental agencies, notwithstanding any contrary

provision of law, may lease, lend, grant or convey to the

authorities of such governmental agencies deem reasonable and fair,

any real property or interest therein, including improvements

thereto or personal property which is necessary or convenient to

the effectuation of the authorized purposes of the authority,
