Keep PA Beautiful Accepting Applications For Fresh Paint Days Beautification Grants

Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful is now accepting applications for Fresh Paint Days Beautification Grants.  The deadline for applications is June 28.
The grants are 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.
This event is held in partnership with support from BEHR paint and The Home Depot.
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. 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 select a color from the BEHR paint line and provide a final report with photos capturing the work in progress, as well as 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 PA Beautiful. “Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful is pleased to continue offering this free program to community groups who want to revitalize their 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 July. Groups will have 30 days in September to complete their projects.
