From JSDC:

The Development Corp may fund up to $1,000,000 in Flex PACE projects in 2021.

At their June 14, 2021 meeting, the Board  approved up to another $720,000 in Flex PACE funding for 2021, which brings the total 2021 Flex PACE funds available to $1-million. This is a one-time funding increase as 2021 seems to be an anomaly compared to prior Flex PACE Program years.

Along with the increase for 2021, the Board also made changes to Program criteria as outlined below.
1) Applicants can have only 1 (one) active Flex PACE loan with JSDC at any given time.
2) Applications must include a Confirmation of Funding Letter from the lender.
3) The rubric includes a new question regarding whether the applicant plans to apply for a property tax incentive.
