"Paint – South Dakota” is underway and South Dakota Housing Development Authority (SDHDA) is seeking volunteer painters and nominations for houses in need of painting.

To get involved, an individual or group of people nominate someone in their community whose home is in need of a fresh coat of exterior paint and then pick a Saturday in June to pick up paint brushes and set aside some free time to help residents in their communities.

The nominated home must be a single family, owner-occupied residence whose owner is physically or financially unable to paint their home themselves.

In the past 20 years, over 500 homes across South Dakota have been painted, resulting in more than 9,801 gallons of paint and primer being applied by 7,346 local volunteers.

“We continue this campaign because of its success in cities and towns of all sizes,” said Executive Director Mark Lauseng. “This campaign promotes volunteerism, benefits our neighbors and beautifies the community.”

Applications may be submitted to SDHDA and must be received by 5 p.m. CDT, April 13, 2018. Applicants will be able to select from one of five weekends in June to complete the painting of the home.

Additional information and a link to the poster and application can be found at http://www.sdhda.org/social-programs/paint-south-dakota.html. Questions can be directed to Sheila Ricketts at 605.773.7603.
