"Fresh Paint Days Pennsylvania" applications being accepted

From our friends at Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful comes a new program called "Fresh Paint Days Pennsylvania." It's a program designed to help communities give an old structure a fresh look through a new coat of paint.

Fresh Paint Days Pennsylvania is designed to provide community groups with paint and painting supplies enabling them to renew a community structure in need into something beautiful through the application of fresh paint and a lot of elbow grease. This annual event is held in partnership with support from PPG Pittsburgh Paints and The Home Depot. The 2011 Fresh Paint Days Pennsylvania will take place in September. During this month-long period, ten grant awardees along with their volunteers will be eligible for up to 40 gallons of exterior paint and $200 in painting supplies.

The Fresh Paint Days Pennsylvania grant is available to any KPB or KAB affiliate in good standing or tax-exempt group within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Private property owners and individual applicants cannot apply. Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful will select the ten winning projects from among applications submitted. Applications must meet the following requirements to be considered:

Selected awardees must also agree to provide a final report with during and after photos. Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful will also provide two of the awardees an additional $500 from PPG Pittsburgh Paints and The Home Depot at the end of the project for community improvement projects, based on reporting and the winner of two criteria; best visual impact and best community revitalization story.

Dowload the grant application and permission to paint forms to get started. Applications must be received by July 31, 2011, and grants will be awarded mid-August 2011. Applications can be submitted electronically or by fax or by mail. Photos must be submitted electronically.
