d. A provider may use funds in an endowment fund or escrow account, including an escrow account established by or pursuant to a mortgage loan, bond indenture or other long-term financing, to satisfy the reserve requirements of this section, if the funds are available to make payments when operating funds are insufficient for these purposes.
