The authority shall promulgate regulations establishing criteria governing the approval of eligible projects.

d. Of the amounts available in the fund in each State fiscal year pursuant to subsection a. of this section, the authority shall designate and reserve in State fiscal years 2004 through 2006 for each casino licensee a maximum share of the available $10 million or such greater amount as may be necessary, which maximum share shall be calculated as follows: the greater of (1) the casino licensee's total payment of the adjusted net income tax imposed pursuant to section 5 of P.L.2003, c.116 (C.5:12-148.3) in State fiscal year 2004, 2005 or 2006, as appropriate, divided by the sum of payments by all casino licensees of that tax in State fiscal year 2004, 2005 or 2006, as appropriate, or (2) an amount equal to one half of the amount of tax paid in State fiscal year 2004, 2005, or 2006 as appropriate. A casino licensee may receive a distribution up to the licensee's maximum share in each State fiscal year and the share of the fund so designated and reserved for a casino licensee that has not been distributed by June 30, 2014 shall be forfeited to the authority for use for its purposes pursuant to law for projects located within the boundaries of the City of Atlantic City, County of Atlantic, as approved by the membership of the authority.
