Summary

The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) is issuing this guidance to alert national banks to concerns and regulatory expectations regarding certain state and local lending programs for energy retrofitting of residential and commercial properties, frequently termed a Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) program. PACE or PACE-like (PACE) programs use the municipal tax assessment process to ensure repayment. Under most of these programs, such loans acquire priority lien, thereby moving the funds advanced for energy improvements ahead of existing first and subordinate mortgage liens. This lien infringement raises significant safety and soundness concerns that mortgage lenders and investors must consider. Reflecting these concerns, the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) today issued the attached statement directing actions that Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and the Federal Home Loan Banks should undertake to protect their operations with regards to such programs.
