KPB: Applications Now Being Accepted For Fresh Paint Days PA

Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful announced their new program, Fresh Paint Days Pennsylvania, and is currently accepting applications. Applications must be received by July 31.
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 tax-exempt group within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Private property owners or 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 – only one building per application, proof of liability insurance, signed permission to paint from the building owner, and two before photos of the intended project. 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.
“We are proud supporters of Fresh Paint Days Pennsylvania,” said Dori Marks, senior marketing manager, PPG Industries. “It is a valuable new program and I really want to encourage community groups in Pennsylvania to take full advantage of this great opportunity.”
“Through our partnership with PPG Pittsburgh Paints and The Home Depot, Fresh Paint Days Pennsylvania empowers community groups to take a direct role in community revitalization efforts,” explains Shannon Reiter, President of Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful. “Something as simple as a fresh coat of paint on a public library or community center sends a strong message that we care about our communities.”
Grants will be awarded mid-August 2011.
