2014 Paint-A-Thon Applications Available

paintathonlogoEach year, on the first weekend in August, Metro Paint-A-Thon rallies volunteer teams from corporations, congregations, and civic groups to paint the homes of seniors and people with disabilities.

The program helps homeowners remain living independently in their own homes and improves neighborhoods throughout the Twin Cities seven-county metropolitan area.  Since 1984, Metro Paint-A-Thon volunteers have painted more than 6,000 homes.

Paint-A-Thon welcomes referrals and accepts applications from all eligible homeowners.  To be considered, completed applications must be received by mid-April. Selected homeowners are notified by mail in early July of each year.

To qualify, the applicant must meet the following criteria:

  • Be over the age of 60 or have a permanent physical disability.
  • Own and occupy a single-family home in Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott or Washington county that needs the exterior painted, but does not need major repairs.

The monthly household income cannot exceed 200% of federal poverty level. See page 1 of the application below for the income limits.
