PACE Program Capitalization
PACE program financing can be provided through private third parties, public bonds, or a combination of both, and within those options, there are many creative approaches being implemented across the nation. In 2017, The Kresge Foundation made a $3 million program-related investment into the St. Paul Port Authority’s "Trillion BTU" and "MinnPACE" loan programs. This was a first of its kind PRI to help the community on-board PACE. This webinar will explore this and other creative methods that communities can utilize to capitalize their PACE program.
