“Last July, Leon County (home to Tallahassee) became the first Florida municipality to adopt the HERO PACE Program. Several other Florida counties and cities followed suit. The latest was Orlando, whose city council approved the program this week. These are a few of the milestones, as HERO PACE comes to Florida & Missouri.
“The key here is drawing a distinction between communities that have approved/adopted HERO and those communities in which the HERO Program has officially launched. There is typically a gap of between 3–6 months between the time of approval/adoption and an actual launch,” explained a company spokesperson.
He added, “You’ll recall that on Sept. 15, the HERO Program launched in Jackson County, Missouri.”
The HERO Program is expected to launch in other Missouri counties and cities before the end of 2016.
Renovate America partnered with the Florida Development Finance Corporation to bring the HERO program to Florida.
When the first program launches in Leon County early in 2017, Florida will become the third state where HERO is active.”
