How is HERO different from other forms of financing?
The HERO Program is different from other forms of financing because:
- It is designed specifically for home improvements that provide energy efficiency,
water-conservation, renewable energy and hurricane protection.
- It is paid at a fixed interest rate through an additional line item on your property taxes.
- It is repaid through your property taxes.
- The interest on these payments may be tax deductible*
Approval for HERO financing is based on factors including your home’s equity, household income, debt obligations, product eligibility, and may vary by jurisdiction. Residential properties with up to four units may be eligible.
*You should consult your tax advisor regarding potential tax benefits.
