Americans for Financial Reform Education Fund, along with 20 organizations in the housing, consumer protection, climate and environmental justice, and community investment spaces, submitted comments on the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB)’s proposed rule on residential Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing.
