"Paint – South Dakota” is underway and South Dakota Housing Development Authority (SDHDA) is seeking volunteers to pick up paint brushes and set aside some free time to help residents in their communities.
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. The home must be a single family, owner-occupied residence whose owner is physically or financially unable to paint their home themselves.
In the last 18 years, over 450 homes across South Dakota have been painted, resulting in more than 8,942 gallons of paint and primer being applied by 6,876 local volunteers.
“We continue this campaign because of its success in cities and towns of all sizes,” said Executive Director Mark Lauseng. “This benefits residents of our state and beautifies the community as well.”
Applications may be submitted to SDHDA and must be received by 5 p.m. CDT, April 1, 2016. Applicants will be able to select from one of four Saturdays in June to complete the painting of the home.
