Cities, Stakeholders Respond to FHFA on PACE Programs

On January 26, 2012, the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) issued an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking affecting Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) programs.  NLC supports local authority to implement PACE programs and at the time encouraged cities and towns in the 28 states that allow PACE programs to also submit comments to FHFA. Below are letters from cities and key stakeholders that were submitted to FHFA.

On June 15, FHFA issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking Concerning Enterprise Underwriting Standards for PACE. NLC once again encourages cities to submit comments prior to the September 13, 2012 deadline.
