The Bay Area Regional Energy Network (BayREN), in partnership with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), has developed the Local Government PACE Portal, a "one-stop shop" for local governments interested in allowing property owners to take advantage of PACE financing. This site includes introductory information about PACE (including a list of PACE providers in the nine Bay Area counties), outlines the steps necessary for making PACE available in your jurisdiction, and provides document templates to help staff prepare packets for presentation to local elected leaders.
