Keep PA Beautiful Now Accepting Applications For Fresh Paint Days Grants

Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful, along with partners BEHR paint and The Home Depot, are now accepting applications for 2018 Fresh Paint Days Pennsylvania Grants.  The deadline for applications is July 31.
The program 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.
Eight grants of up to 20 gallons of exterior paint and a gift card for painting supplies will be awarded to tax-exempt groups within Pennsylvania. Groups will have 30 days to complete their projects, September 1 through 30.  
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 select a color from the Behr paint line and provide a final report with during and after photos.  
“At Behr Paint, we believe in doing the right thing and we’re on a mission to make a difference in the communities where we live and work,” said Drew Hatcher, Contract Management Director at Behr Paint.  “Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful is an amazing organization and everyone in the community is enriched by their Fresh Paint Days efforts. We are proud to once again be partnering with them to help beautify communities across the state.”
“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 Pennsylvania Beautiful. “Keep Pennsylvania is pleased to continue offering this program to organizations as an impetus to improve our communities’ one structure at a time. It is a valuable program and I want to encourage community groups in Pennsylvania to take full advantage of this great opportunity.”
Grants will be awarded in early-August.
The Fresh Paint Days Pennsylvania grant is available to any tax-exempt group within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.  Private property owners or individual applicants are not eligible.
