HERO stands for Home Energy Renovation Oppourtunity

What is the HERO Program?

The HERO Program from Renovate America provides homeowners access to financing for energy-efficient, water-conserving, renewable energy and hurricane protection home improvements. Types of products that are eligible for HERO vary by state, depending on local legislation.

Can anyone apply for HERO?

If you live in a city or county where HERO has been approved by the local government, you can apply for HERO financing.

Can HERO be used to finance more than one project?

Yes, you can finance multiple projects. However, all projects must be approved in order to make sure they meet efficiency standards.

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 primarily based on the equity in the homeowner's home and their debt payment history, rather than their credit score.
