How does C-PACE work? • The C-PACE program is a uniform,turn-key program and administration platform that can be adopted at no cost to the locality that opts in by passing an enabling ordinance. • Localities are responsible for recording the assessment and enforcing the lien in case of foreclosure. • The Program Administrator markets the program to property owners, service providers and contractors, underwrites and approves borrower applications, assists in loan processing as requested by the locality and provides community outreach on the benefits of C-PACE. June 8, 2021 7 CITY COUNCIL'S BRIEFINGS C-PACE PROGRAM (Continued) Who is eligible for C-PACE? • C-PACE is currently available to commercial properties located within a C-PACE enabled district. • Eligible properties are generally defined as: •Office,retail,and hospitality •Warehouse and industrial •Agricultural and vacant land •Medical offices,private hospitals,acute care facilities •Multifamily with 5+units(in most areas),senior living and assisted living •Specialty real estate such as golf courses,sports facilities,theatres,and private schools. • Eligible commercial properties may be owned by non-governmental,tax-exempt organizations such as community centers,hospitals,theaters,schools,religious facilities,etc. • C-PACE can be used for upgrading existing buildings including major renovations and adaptive reuse of underutilized buildings as well as new construction. Here is Virginia Beach C-PACE Program Options: Virginia Beach C-PACE Program Options City Council must pass an enabling ordinance that allows the jurisdiction to implement C-PACE in one of four ways: • City of Virginia Beach Self-Administers program • City of Virginia Beach contracts with a third-party administrator through a competitive procurement process • Opt into the state sponsored program expected sometime in 2021 • Utilize the cooperative provision in the Fairfax or Loudon County Contract June 8, 2021 8 CITY COUNCIL'S BRIEFINGS C-PACE PROGRAM (Continued) \1B Virginia Beach Questions?
