Keep PA Beautiful Now Accepting Applications For Fresh Paint Days PA Grants

Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful Wednesday announced they are now accepting applications for 2016 Fresh Paint Days Pennsylvania Grants.  Applications are due 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 event is held in partnership with support from Behr and The Home Depot.  
The 2016 Fresh Paint Days Pennsylvania will take place in September.  During this month-long period, eight grant awardees along with their volunteers will be eligible for up to 20 gallons of exterior paint and a gift card for 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 eight winning projects from among applications submitted.  
Selected grantees 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 grantees must also agree to provide a final report with during and after photos.  
"Behr, as an employer in the State of Pennsylvania,'believes in doing the right thing', and giving back to the community through the Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful Fresh Paint Days program is a good opportunity for Behr  to help those in need,” stated Drew Hatcher, Director of Contract Management.
“Through our partnership with Behr 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 PA 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.
