NEW! Broward County's Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) Program
On June 14th, the Commission approved a countywide property assessed clean energy (PACE) program, unlocking an innovative form of financing for clean energy and resilience improvements for property owners across the county. PACE allows property owners to receive up-front loans for qualifying improvements, such as energy conservation, renewable energy, and wind resistance. Property owners then repay the loans through voluntary assessments on their property tax bills. More information can be viewed here.
Broward County Libraries Division introduces the Save Future Florida! Program, featuring a contest and camps exploring the important issue of climate change and sea level rise in Florida. Children 9-12 years old will be tasked with finding solutions and adaptations to solve a very real crisis in our community. An Invention Contest begins this January with a county-wide essay and drawing contest describing a new invention to solve or adapt to climate change. Then this Spring, Creativity Camps launch with two 8 week camps at Tamarac and North Lauderdale branches in which children will tackle various problems such as drinking water shortages, housing losses, and financial issues of climate change and sea rise.
