Transform your Township a Gallon of Paint at a Time

Monday July 10th, 2017
Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful is accepting applications for the 2017 Fresh Paint Days Pennsylvania grants. 
 
The month-long program, which kicks off in September, provides eight awardees and their volunteers with up to 20 gallons of exterior paint provided by Behr and a $50 gift card from Home Depot for painting supplies to renew a structure in need. 
 
Townships and any other tax-exempt groups in Pennsylvania are eligible, and only one building per application is allowed. Applicants must also provide 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 of the project. 
 
The application deadline is July 17, and grants will be awarded in mid-August. Projects must be completed during Fresh Paint Days Pennsylvania September 1-30, 2017.

Additional information is also available by contacting Michelle Dunn, Fresh Paint Days Pennsylvania program coordinator, toll-free at (877) 772-3673, ext. 113, or mdunn@keeppabeautiful.org.
 
Since 1990, Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful and its volunteers have removed more than 113 million pounds of litter from the commonwealth’s roads, greenways, parks, forests, and waterways.
