Brazos County, Texas Adopts PACE
This morning, the Brazos County Commissioners Court adopted the PACE in a Box program. The local stakeholder community is especially grateful to Commissioner Irma Cauley, who heard a local presentation about PACE and immediately went to work with local economic development experts -The Research Valley Partnership, contractors, property owners, lenders, and other stakeholders from Bryan, College Station, and throughout the County to promote the process and shepherd the program through the adoption process.
Brazos County, home to the Texas A&M University and the George Herbert Walker Bush Presidential Library and Museum, is the 9th local government to adopt the uniform PACE in a Box program. Local stakeholders are wasting no time in taking advantage of the new Brazos PACE program, which is administered by the Texas PACE Authority.
Brazos County is experiencing significant growth. To meet the housing needs of the collegiate community and permanent residents of Brazos County, a large portion of the multi-family housing stock needs renovation that will result in energy and water saving measures, and help preserve affordable housing. Giving small businesses and industrial companies the financing necessary to retrofit their infrastructures with more efficient equipment that lowers operating expenses will make Brazos County businesses more competitive. A Brazos County PACE program also enables nonprofit organizations to improve their properties without diverting core mission dollars or donations.
